Today in Labor History

August 15, 2008
Eight automotive department employees at a Walmart near Ottawa won an arbitrator-imposed contract after voting for UFCW representation, becoming the giant retailer's only location in North America with a collective bargaining agreement. Two months later the company closed the department. Three years earlier Walmart had closed an entire store on the same day the government announced an arbitrator would impose a contract agreement there. Union Communication Services

Multi-employer pension crisis sparks reform
May 22, 2018 | What went wrong with America’s union-sponsored multi-employer pension plans, including the fourth largest, the Teamster Central States Pension Fund? And how can Congress fix the crisis? In an in-depth and informative article, Northwest Labor Press – an independent, union-supported newspaper – explains what happened to the pension plans and explores how Congress could fix them. More than 1,300 plans were battered by the 2000 and 2008 financial crashes and "more than nine tenths of them have either recovered or are on track to recover. But the remaining tenth are in a death spiral, and not because of anything the trustees did or didn’t do. Looking back, it’s clear that policies set by Congress created the crisis.” Read it here.

Make your voice heard: Say NO to ‘skinny’ NAFTA
May 25, 2018 | Since 1994, NAFTA has devastated working families, putting corporate profits ahead of people. What's worse is that NAFTA has become the blueprint for all other trade agreements, from the way that it was negotiated in secret, to the bad provisions that have made their way into every agreement that has been signed since then, to strong language protecting workers being left out of those new agreements. A ‘skinny’ NAFTA wouldn’t include important protections for American workers, and that is unacceptable to Teamster members. Today’s NAFTA protects corporations, but there were promises that NAFTA 2.0 would protect working families. NAFTA 2.0 must be negotiated in the open, with input from working families, environmental groups and everyday Americans. A ‘skinny’ NAFTA would exclude all of these voices, and just be more of the same bad trade policy that caters to corporate interests. Use your voice to tell the U.S. trade representative to stay at the table until working families get the deal they need.

Union receives UPS’ initial economic proposals
May 25, 2018 | The Teamsters National UPS Negotiating Committee received UPS’ initial economic proposal this week, and the union will be responding during the next round of negotiations. The company’s action comes after the union committee made its initial economic proposal during the last negotiations in late April. “As we anticipated, the company’s initial economic proposals do not address our members’ needs as written,” said Denis Taylor, co-chair of the committee. The next round of negotiations will take place June 4-7. More on UPS Freight negotiations, and an info on the Safety and Health Committee's progress in this update.
