  • Clare Rose Contract Ratified

    Drivers and warehouse workers overwhelming voted for a new contract that preserves their pensions and provides fair wages.  The vote ends the 82 day strike in which none of the 130 union members crossed the picket line.  Local 812 members will now return to work, grateful for the outpouring of public, union and community support during their struggle for a fair contract.

  • Oppose Anti-Union “Right-to-Work”

    A national version of so called "right-to-work" legislation was recently introduced in the US Congress. This bill would impose anti-union laws across the U.S., including New York. The effect that right-to-work has had on wages and working conditions in the states where it has already been implemented have been devastating, so we need to do everything in our power to stop this law from going into effect nationwide.

  • Fighting Soda Taxes Across the U.S.

    Local 812 waged a winning battle to stop Mayor Bloomberg’s soda tax in New York City. Our members, staff and officers rallied, testified at City Council hearings and joined in a lawsuit. It took years, but the NYC tax was defeated.

    Emboldened by the tax that was recently passed in Philadelphia, other cities have imposed soda taxes and more are attempting to do so. This November, voters in San Francisco and Oakland will decide on proposals to raise taxes on soft drinks. Other city councils are considering increasing soda taxes to plug budget holes.

  • 'This is war': Labor unions fear Supreme Court will target private sector unions next

    union proudThe Supreme Court drew a sharp line between public and private workers when it barred governments from automatically deducting "fair share" fees from the paychecks of nonunion members who benefit from collective bargaining. The 5-4 decision in Janus v. American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees alarmed labor groups representing corporate employees nonetheless.
