Guest Workers Fired After Protesting Slave-Like Conditions
Photojournalist and trade unionist David Bacon is author of Communities Without Borders: Images and Voices from the World of Migration.

Hundreds of guest workers from India are protesting conditions in a Pascagoula shipyard that immigrant rights activists compare to slavery. Many gathered in a church on March 11 in this Gulf Coast port, after their employer, Signal International, threatened to send some of the workers home. Signal is a large corporation that repairs and services oil drilling platforms in the Gulf.

by Mike Hall, Mar 14, 2007

The Fire Fighters (IAFF) union is hosting the nation’s first bipartisan presidential debate of the 2008 election season, and Mike Hall is live-blogging today from the meeting in Washington, D.C. Each candidate will speak for 15 minutes.

Sen. Sam Brownback (R-Kan.), New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson (D) and Sen. Joe Biden (D-Del.) wound up the Fire Fighters’ bipartisan presidential forum this afternoon at the Hyatt Regency in Washington, D.C.


Brownback brought a message to the more than 900 delegates that he says centers on hope, growth and family.

Afternoon Forum Highlights Candidates’ Stands on Iraq War
by Mike Hall, Mar 14, 2007

The Fire Fighters union is hosting the nation’s first bipartisan presidential debate of the 2008 election season, and Mike Hall is live-blogging today from the meeting in Washington, D.C. Each candidate will speak for 15 minutes.


Sen. John McCain kicked off the afternoon session with a few jokes—mostly self-deprecating—and those were met with laughs. But his nearly 10-minute, somber but heartfelt, defense of the war in Iraq was met at best with polite applause

Labor Union Resources has put everything a worker needs to know about labor unions. From Grievance handling, benefits, collective bargaining, organizing, union busting, Section 7 rights, filing a union petition and/or filing a unfair labor charge it can all be found here.

Labor Union Resources has hundreds of links which can help you find what you are looking for and one of the most extensive online shop steward training programs used by both labor unions and shop stewards all across the country.

Employees nationwide are struggling with economic and workload issues: whether a Janitor, Home Care Worker, a Nurse, a Security Professional, a Police Officer, a Fire Fighter, a Construction Worker, an Office Worker, or any worker who is mistreated in the workplace each day; each are turning to labor unions for organizing.

Only through joining or forming labor unions can there be any guarantee for Dignity, Rights, and Respect in the workplace.

We deserve it and our families' futures deserve it.
