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 ...

NAFTA Negotiations Still Need Improvement
NAFTA Negotiations Still Need Improvement On Sept. 27, the United States, Canada and Mexico finished the third round of the North American Free Trade Agreement renegotiation talks. We’ve been told these talks will “get a better deal for our workers,” but the negotiating goals seem to prioritize getting a better deal for corporations that want to offshore jobs and decrease wages. That means NAFTA will continue to make it harder for you to get a raise.  The negotiations are held behind closed doors. The public does not have access to the negotiating texts. This means we know few details—and the devil is always in the details when we’re talking trade. That alone means there is cause for concern: Transparent and democratic negotiations are the AFL-CIO’s #1 recommenda
The Economy Loses 33,000 Jobs in September, and Unemployment Was Little Changed at 4.2%
The Economy Loses 33,000 Jobs in September, and Unemployment Was Little Changed at 4.2% The U.S. economy lost 33,000 jobs in September, and unemployment was little changed at 4.2%, according to figures released this morning by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The decline likely reflects the impact of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. In response to the September jobs numbers, AFL-CIO Chief Economist William Spriggs tweeted: September's #JobsReport clearly shows labor market is still recovering (as long term unemployment falling) not a structural shift @AFLCIO pic.twitter.com/UuterBTuzw — William E. Spriggs (@WSpriggs) October 6, 2017 Over the year, from last September, wages up 2.9% That is too modest for the @federalreserve to consider sticking to raising interest rates — William E.

World Day for Decent Work: Immigrant Protections Essential for Achieving Decent Work
World Day for Decent Work: Immigrant Protections Essential for Achieving Decent Work Oct. 7 marks the 10th annual World Day for Decent Work, a day when unions across the globe mobilize for decent work. In local events, workers highlight issues of corporate greed, low wages, inequality and injustice. In the United States, immigrant workers and communities are under attack as the Donald Trump administration threatens some of the few protections available to immigrants in vulnerable circumstances. This undermines decent work and the ability of all working people to come together to assert their rights on the job. The Trump administration has announced that it will end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which will strip away work authorization from nearly 800,000 productive members of our society. Further, the administration is currently asses
Working Families Join Together to Help Puerto Rico
Working Families Join Together to Help Puerto Rico AFL-CIO As the humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico continues, working people from across the country are joining together to help with recovery and rebuilding. The AFL-CIO is teaming up with the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA (AFA-CWA), Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA), Machinists (IAM) and United Airlines to fly more than 300 first responders and skilled volunteers to Puerto Rico to help with relief and rebuilding efforts. The flight was a response to the urgent need to get highly skilled workers to Puerto Rico to help people seeking medical and humanitarian assistance, as well as to help with the rebuilding effort. The nurses, doctors, electricians, engineers, carpenters and truck drivers on the flight will engage in various efforts, including helping c
