Today in Labor History

Mar. 5, 1770: British soldiers, quartered in the homes of colonists, took the jobs of working people when jobs were scarce. On this date, grievances of rope makers against the soldiers led to a fight. Soldiers shot down Crispus Attucks, a black colonist, then others, in what became known as the Boston Massacre. Attucks is considered the first casualty in the American Revolution.

What This Teamsters' Story Says About America
Posted On: May 22, 2013

May 22, 2013 | WAR ON WORKERS | In 2010, after his Illinois printing company was bought by a private equate firm, Marcus Hedger was illegally fired for his union activities as a shop steward for the Graphic Communications Conference of Teamsters. Last September, the full National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) — two Democrats and one Republican at the time — unanimously ruled he should be rehired with back pay. What happened? Nothing, except to Marcus. The company appealed the ruling in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, and it has been able to avoid reinstating Marcus because his case is on hold over a radical challenge to NLRB board appointments. Marcus lost his home and is working at a job that pays one-third of what he was earning before. Continue reading here and then call your senators toll free at 1-888-264-6154 and tell them to confirm the NLRB nominations now.
