Today in 1934
The Toledo (Ohio) Auto-Lite strike begins today with 6,000 workers demanding union recognition and higher pay. The strike is notable for a five-day running battle in late May between the strikers and 1,300 members of the Ohio National Guard. Known as the “Battle of Toledo,” the clash left two strikers dead and more than 200 injured. The two-month strike, a win for the workers’ union, is regarded by many labor historians as one of the nation’s three most important strikes. ~ Labor Tribune

NLRB: No More Dodging Labor Law With Temp Agencies, Franchise Structures
Posted On: Feb 22, 2024
Feb. 22, 2024 | WORKERS’ RIGHTS | Workers will soon have more power to bargain with all the companies that have a say in their working conditions — not just the company whose name is on their paycheck. Under a new National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) rule that takes effect Feb. 26, whoever controls a worker’s essential terms of employment — including wages, benefits, and work schedules — is considered an employer and must recognize and bargain with the union representing those workers. The “joint employer” rule is meant to get around shell games some employers have played, in which the entity that really calls the shots, like a franchiser or outsourcer, claims that an employment agency or franchisee is the sole employer.
