Wisconsin State Senate voted Today to end End Collective Bargaining! (tags)

Late Wednesday, Wisconsin Republicans rammed a measure through the Senate stripping collective bargaining rights from most public workers in the state.... Republicans were able to push through the measure... by separating the collective bargaining provision from the other elements of Governor Scott Walker's "budget repair bill.".... Scott Walker spent three weeks claiming that collective bargaining was a fiscal issue, and then the legislature just passed the bill as “non-fiscal.”..... Within hours of the vote, the Capitol was flooded with thousands of furious protesters......

Over 1,000 Turn Out in San Diego to Support Wisconsin Workers (tags)

Over 1,000 people turned out for a rally outside the San Diego County Administrative Center February 26 at noon to support Wisconsin's unionized public workers against the threat by Governor Scott Walker and the Republican majority in the state legislature to pass a bill essentially eliminating the right of the state's public employees to unionize and bargain collectively. A wide range of speakers, including union activists, community leaders and elected officials, said that if Walker's bill and similar ones in other states pass, it will essentially mark the end of the American middle class. The rally was part of a nationwide mobilization, and many of those who braved the cold and the rain to attend mentioned that the protesters in Wisconsin itself are sleeping out in the cold and snow in weather far worse than that in San Diego.

Railroad workers unite ! (tags)

Organized labor in the U.S. is fast approaching a crossroads. The enormous successes of the past are under attack, putting the unions in a defensive position. Battling not only the companies but their own bureaucracy, the rank and file of various powerful unions find themselves facing extraordinary sell-out contracts approved by their “leadership,” but benefiting only the company. The struggle to defeat these sell-out contracts may well be the opening clashes of a revival of the U.S. labor movement, which has lain dormant for decades, but which by its very nature may lead to larger conflict. It is in this context that Amtrak workers have dealt a temporary blow to the trend of concession and showcased their growing political consciousness when, after bargaining for 8 years, a coalition of 10 Amtrak unions either rejected revolting tentative agreements that their union “leaders” had brokered with Amtrak, or refused to continue the seemingly now-pointless process of bargaining. This has put Amtrak workers on a collision course with management, i.e., the federal government. The creation of an “illegal” coalition of Amtrak unions to bargain – “illegal” because it violates the Railway Labor Act – was the first progressive step in increasing the power of the workers. Now nine unions are poised to strike Amtrak, and if it weren’t for a “Presidential Emergency Board” (PEB) that intervened, they’d be picketing already. The PEB – consisting of all Bush appointees – must now decide if every avenue of arbitration has been tried, when everyone already knows that it already has. The PEB was officially established on Dec. 1st, and in 60 days, if no agreement is reached, the parties will be free to act themselves. For the workers this will mean striking. For the bosses, this will mean imposing their terms of employment and destroying the gains of the past.

Anaheim Elementary Education Assoc. and Board of Ed at IMPASSE! (tags)

PUBLIC NOTICE: The Anaheim Elementary Education Association (AEEA) and the Anaheim City School District (ACSD) bargaining teams met with a State mediator on Friday, July 27, 2007. While the entire AEEA bargaining team came prepared to reach a settlement – cancelling vacations and other personal plans – a crucial member of the District team was NOT in attendance. This absence reinforced the perception that teachers are not a priority in the Anaheim City School District, and it is an indication that reaching a timely settlement is not a District priority. The presence of over one hundred AEEA members, waving signs, wearing buttons, and encouraging honks of support, inspired the AEEA bargaining team and showed the mediator that both its membership and their needs are truly being represented. Public support of AEEA UNION members is very much appreciated!
