Today in Labor History

Nov. 22, 1963 President John F. Kennedy is assassinated. Generally considered a friend of labor, Kennedy a year earlier had issued Executive Order 10988, which authorized unionization and a limited form of collective bargaining rights for most federal workers (excluding the Department of Defense). Many states followed the example set by Kennedy.

TEAMSTERS LOCAL 992 IN HAGERSTOWN, MARYLAND SUPPORTS FIGHT FOR WORKERS’ RIGHTS
 
Teamsters Local Union 992 in Hagerstown, MD is standing with workers throughout the United States who are fighting an unprecedented attack on working families that has been launched across the country.
 
“We’re not going to let them get away with it,” said Tom Krause, Secretary-Treasurer of Local 992. “By launching this corporate-funded attack against all working people, the forces who want to deny workers their rights and dignity have united us. We are saying ‘enough is enough.’ We are going to make sure we defend the rights of workers in our area and those throughout the United States.”
 
Local unions throughout the United States are stepping up and standing with the workers in Wisconsin and other states that are under direct attack. We have a saying in the labor movement, ‘an injury to one is an injury to all.’ We will fight for as long as it takes to defend workers’ rights and say no to this coordinated attack. This is not just about public employees—this fight involves all workers.”
 
Founded in 1903, the Teamsters Union represents 1.4 million hardworking men and women throughout the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico, including thousands of law enforcement officers in over 1,400 departments and agencies.
