Following up my WFTU article elsewhere in this blog, I found this exotic piece from a leading officer of the WFTU, Quim Boix (Catalonia, Spain), in which he, along the way, attacks the major Communist trade union centre in Spain, the CCOO! This is not the first time he has done this since he did it a few months previously when representing the WFTU (or Spain, or his own Catalonian union centre?) to an anniversary congress of the Communist CGTP in Peru.… Continue

This is the fourth of eight articles on union organizing.
This article is outstanding and a very helpful resource for union organizers at all stages. I think the most important thing is to not let scabs get in your way. Its tough out there, but unionists are strong. Continue

I'm outraged about the latest right-wing scam! Indiana just became the 23rd state to adopt a "right-to-work" law. Now extremist politicians are pushing right to work wherever they can -- Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, Ohio, and states around the country. Continue
But right to work isn't about rights or work. In fact, right-to-work laws drive down job standards for all of us.
Will you join me in fighting back against this deceptive policy? We need to take a stand to…

Worker rights and a decent wage represent a toxic brew to the ruling…

After God had finished the rattlesnake, the toad, and the vampire, he had some awful substance left with which he made a scab.
A scab is a two-legged animal with a corkscrew soul, a water brain, a combination backbone of jelly and glue. Where others have hearts, he carries a tumor of rotten principles.
When a scab…
