On This Day in 1948
An unknown assailant shoots through a window at United Auto Workers President Walter Reuther as he is eating dinner at his kitchen table, permanently impairing his right arm. It was one of at least two assassination attempts on Reuther. He and his wife later died in a small plane crash under what many believe to be suspicious circumstances.

    Investing in Workers Means Justice for Retirees, A Leg Up for the Middle Clas
    Apr. 20, 2021 | OPINION | When work has dignity, everyone can earn a secure retirement. Pensions are critical to the economic security of families who depend on these benefits to afford the rent or the mortgage, their prescription drugs and medical bills, and more. Multiemployer plans allow union workers with different employers to earn and save for a secure retirement, making it easier for workers to move between employers in industries like plumbing or trucking while earning a pension. They allow small businesses that want to do right by their workers, but who are too small to set up pension plans on their own… U.S. Labor Secretary Marty Walsh and Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) at Cleveland.com
    Miners’ Union Backs Shift From Coal in Exchange for Jobs
    Apr. 20, 2021 | JOBS | The nation’s largest coal miners’ union said Monday it would accept President Joe Biden’s plan to move away from coal and other fossil fuels in exchange for a “true energy transition” that includes thousands of jobs in renewable energy and spending on technology to make coal cleaner. Cecil Roberts, president of the United Mine Workers of America, said ensuring jobs for displaced miners — including 7,000 coal workers who lost their jobs last year — is crucial to any infrastructure bill taken up by Congress… AP News

    Amazon Union Vote Shows Why We Need the PRO Act
    Apr. 14, 2021 | WORKERS’ RIGHTS | […] While the outcome may not have resulted in a union, there is no doubt that the Bessemer union drive is just the beginning of a re-energized national labor movement — a movement driven by the systemic inequality that has allowed Jeff Bezos to become the richest man in the world while his employees are forced to forgo breaks and urinate in bottles in order to meet demands from management. Inspired by the fight in Bessemer, Amazon workers at other fulfillment centers in Baltimore, New Orleans, Portland, Denver, and southern California have all begun exploring ways to form unions at their own Amazon facilities. “The American public is now hyper-aware of what Amazon warehouse workers and drivers are forced to go through: Grueling hours with impossible demandsNation of Change
    America Needs to Empower Workers Again
    Apr. 14, 2021 | OPINION | […] Organized labor used to provide a counterweight to corporate influence. Unions were never in a position to match corporate dollar power, but they could offer people power — the ability to mobilize their members and their members’ friends and neighbors in a way corporations couldn’t.
