ENG: A trade union (British English) or labor union (American English and Canadian English) is an organization of workers that have banded together to achieve common goals such as better working conditions. The trade union, through its leadership, bargains with the employer on behalf of union members (rank and file members) and negotiates labour contracts (collective bargaining) with employers. This may include the negotiation of wages, work rules, complaint procedures, rules governing hiring, firing and promotion of workers, benefits, workplace safety and policies. The agreements negotiated by the union leaders are binding on the rank and file members and the employer and in some cases on other non-member workers. Originating in Europe, trade unions became popular in many countries ...

Labor Unions Punish Good Workers


It seems intuitive that a free market would lead to a "race to the bottom." In a global marketplace, profit-chasing employers will cut costs by paying workers less and less, and shipping jobs to China. It's a reason that progressives say government must step in. So America now has thousands of rules that outlaw wages below $7.25 an hour, restrict unpaid internships, and compel people to pay union dues. These rules appear to help workers. But they don't. "Collective bargaining" sounds good. Collective bargaining "rights" even better. Employers are more sophisticated about job ...


Unions hit Romney on equal pay


WASHINGTON - A Senate vote on equal pay for equal work for women was blocked by a Republican minority today. Just days before the Paycheck Fairness Act went down to GOP-fillibuster defeat, the steelworkers union and the Teamsters had challenged GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney to back the legislation. Steelworkers President Leo Gerard and Teamsters President James Hoffa spoke out for the legislation, pushed by a coalition of Democratic senators led by Barbara Mikulski, D-Md. The Paycheck Fairness Act would make it illegal for firms to discipline or fire workers who ask about pay. Other ...


Juan Williams: Future of U.S. labor unions at stake...


... in Wisconsin Ann Coulter on the right and Rachel Maddow on the left agree Wisconsin’s vote this Tuesday on recalling Gov. Scott Walker is going to have national implications. They’ve got that right. If Walker wins, it will encourage Republican governors around the nation to enact more laws that diminish the power of public worker unions. Those efforts usually involve stripping unions of collective bargaining rights in an effort to shut off the money flowing from unions to Democrats. Since the 2010 midterm elections, GOP governors have been intent on closing off the ...

Two Workers Assassinated in Mexico: NAFTA Renegotiation Is More Important Now Than Ever
Two Workers Assassinated in Mexico: NAFTA Renegotiation Is More Important Now Than Ever The need to fundamentally improve the labor provisions of the North American Free Trade Agreement took on a new urgency over the weekend, as a group of armed civilians, calling themselves the “Tonalapa Community Police,” (Policía Comunitaria de Tonalapa) attacked striking workers, killing two, at the Media Luna mine in Guerrero, Mexico. The murders occurred just five hours south of Mexico City, where representatives from the United States, Canada and Mexico are in the midst of their fifth round of talks about rewriting NAFTA. The aggressors, meanwhile, were released after being briefly detained by an army squadron. The striking workers, who want to be represented by the National Union of Mine, Metal, Steel and Related Workers of the Mexican Republic (Los Mineros) and a

Working People Stand Up to Nabisco's Outsourcing on National Day of Action AFL-CIO Yesterday, at more than 100 big-box stores across the United States, working families and activists leafleted with Nabisco workers to urge consumers to boycott Nabisco snacks like Oreo, Ritz Crackers and Chips Ahoy that are made in Mexico!

Working people like Anthony Jackson illustrate the human impact of the decisions made by Nabisco and Mondelēz: “This was going to be my career,” said 41-year-old Anthony Jackson. In 2011 Jackson, a Navy veteran, was hired to operate the machine that blends sugar
