Introducing the 'State of the Unions' Podcast
The AFL-CIO has launched another tool to bring you the issues and stories that matter to working people. Our new podcast, “State of the Unions,” officially debuted today with an interview with Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, the pediatrician who helped expose the Flint, Michigan, water crisis.
Support Locked-Out Boilermakers in Montana
The labor movement supports members of the Boilermakers (IBB) working at Imerys Talc in Three Forks, Montana, who have been unfairly locked out while fighting against an anti-worker contract proposal. These hardworking Americans and their families have been without a paycheck or employer-provided health insurance for 62 days.
One Job Should Be Enough
Weeks after more than 8,300 UNITE HERE members at Marriott hotels across the country voted to authorize strikes, management has still failed to resolve key contract issues, including workplace safety, job protections and a living wage. Ready to fight for their fundamental economic rights, workers are prepared to walk out without notice in San Francisco, San Diego, Oakland and San Jose, California; Oahu and Maui, Hawaii; Boston; Seattle and Detroit.
As Dr. Christine Blasey Ford shared her story with the Senate Judiciary Committee today, working women and men across the country are demanding that justice be served. Willfully disregarding Brett Kavanaugh’s egregious record and alleged behavior, Senate Republicans are sprinting to place him on the highest court in the land. We’re fighting back, demanding a nominee that meets the standard we should expect from the Supreme Court.
We're Gonna Fight for It
Today, the AFL-CIO launched a new 60-second TV ad airing on CNN, MSNBC and Fox News, highlighting the wave of collective action surging across the country and inviting all working people to join our movement. From the resounding defeat of “right to work” in Missouri to organizing victories nationwide, we are marching forward together.
