Today in Labor History

July 7, 1903
The March of the Mill Children, the three-week trek from Philadelphia to President Roosevelt’s home on Long Island by striking child and adult textile workers, was launched by Mary Harris “Mother” Jones. The march turned public attention on the scourge of child labor and energized efforts to end it by law.

Stewards Undergo Extensive Training Designed to Sharpen Skills
Updated On: Apr 12, 2012


MAR. 21, 2012 |  Sixty-three of our shop stewards are brushing up on their representational skills at "Education for a Democratic Workplace," a Local 570-sponsored 3-day steward training conducted by Professor Michael Childers from the University of Wisconsin's School for Workers, a university extension of continuing education and outreach.

"This seminar presents a great opportunity for our leaders to learn, but also network with other Local stewards which helps them better understand the issues facing them in their own shops," said Principal Officer Sean Cedenio.

Childers advised stewards to "look at every conversation you have with a member as an opportunity to grow the union." The seminar will conclude tomorrow. More coverage to come.
