On This Day in 1919
Andrew Carnegie, the richest and most successful late-19th-century capitalist, died on this day in New York (and Good Riddance!). Andrew Carnegie was a notorious union-buster and slave-driver and was infamous for his role in crushing the Homestead strike of 1892. Carnegie mills produced one-quarter of the nation’s steel by the earlier 20th century, and his annual profits were $25 million.

At Will vs. Just Cause
Updated On: Jan 16, 2019
In the State of Maryland, employees not covered by a union contract can be terminated for any reason, or for no reason at all.

However, employees covered by a union contract can only be terminated for "just cause" – simple words, but they mean a lot. It means that an employer can not arbitrarily terminate an employee.

In your union contract, you will find information about the grievance and arbitration procedures that spell out what needs to be done when an employee believes they are being disciplined unfairly by an employer.
