On This Day in 1951
The National Negro Labor Council is formed in Cincinnati to unite black workers in the struggle for full economic, political and social equality. The group was to function for five years before disbanding, having forced many AFL and CIO unions to adopt non-discrimination policies.

    Will the Reconciliation Bill Do Anything to Secure Workers’ Rights?

    Oct. 27, 2021 | POLITICAL/LEGISLATIVE | It’s still Striketober, and people are taking notice. Gallup tells us that unions have the highest public favorability rating they’ve had in half a century. And yesterday, a poll conducted by Data for Progress asking respondents if they favored employees going on strike for better wages, benefits, and working conditions found that 74 percent of Americans, and even 60 percent of Republicans, approved. None of this, however, has translated to any congressional legislation bolstering America’s long-beleaguered unions. In fact, we haven’t seen that in the U.S. since World War II. However, that 70-year-plus record of refusing to shore up the worker power that employers and the courts have steadily eroded may be coming to an end… The American Prospect  AP PHOTO/SETH WENIG

    Truckers, Port Workers Vent As Supply Chain Frustration Mounts

    Oct. 26, 2021 | ECONOMY | The great global supply chain crisis of 2021 — which has ensnared groceries, holiday shopping, and everything in between — has bottlenecked West Coast ports, and drawn the involvement of the White House to address it. As the disruption reaches a boiling point and adds to rising price pressures, longshoremen, union representatives, and truck drivers have pointed fingers over which party is best positioned to alleviate some of the strains. Cargo ships afloat in the Pacific Ocean demonstrate the convergence of strong consumer demand, and a widespread shortage of bodies to meet it. According to Goldman Sachs, over 30 million tons of cargo await delivery ahead of the Thanksgiving to Christmas rush … So who exactly is to blame? Some drivers lined up at the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach that have spoken to Yahoo Finance in recent days have an answer: Not us. “There's a lot of us that are willing to work,” Carlos Rameriz, a 25-year truck driving veteran, said in an interview… Yahoo Finance

    Bad Managers Are Making the Labor Crisis Worse

    Oct. 25, 2021 | ECONOMY | […] In the urgency of the moment, it’s easy to overstate the significance of what’s going on; every major recession leaves scars. But some things don’t change, and that includes the most basic requirement for keeping employees happy and on the job: Good management. Government policymakers can run around trying to fix the situation by mandating higher wages, more benefits, or even by expanding the power of unions. None of that will change the simple fact that bad managers are a handicap no company can afford anymore… Bloomberg
