Dear Colleague & Vote No Letters to Congress
Updated On: Feb 13, 2013

All,

see attached two letters to Congressmen from their Colleague's Mr. Connolly & Mr. Cummings & Mr. Wolf.

Mr. Wolf seeks ALL to vote NO on HR 273 and says it quite nicely "...this bill is nothing more than a political stunt that targets the hardworking dedicated men and women of the civil service, who have already had their salaries frozen for more than two years"...

and Mr. Connolly & Mr. Cummings letter asks members of congress to extend the current pay freeze for themselves, Members of Congress, and not federal employees through 2013...we don't know the bill number just yet as it has not been assigned since it is being dropped in the hopper today...stay tuned...thanks, Terry

Weekend Labor History

March 27 

Mother Jones is ordered to leave Colorado, where state authorities accuse her of “stirring up” striking coal miners - 1904

U.S. Supreme Court rules that undocumented workers do not have the same rights as Americans when they are wrongly fired - 2002

March 28 

Members of Gas House Workers’ Union Local 18799 begin what is to become a 4-month recognition strike against the Laclede Gas Light Co. in St. Louis. The union later said the strike was the first ever against a public utility in the U.S. - 1935

Martin Luther King, Jr., leads a march of striking sanitation workers, members of AFSCME Local 1733, in Memphis, Tenn. Violence during the march persuades him to return the following week to Memphis, where he was assassinated – 1968

(All Labor Has Dignity: People forget that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was every bit as committed to economic justice as he was to ending racial segregation. He fought throughout his life to connect the labor and civil rights movements, envisioning them as twin pillars for social reform. As we struggle with unemployment, a staggering racial wealth gap, and the near collapse of a financial system that puts profits before people, this collection of King's speeches on labor rights and economic justice underscore his relevance for today. They help us imagine King anew: as a human rights leader whose commitment to unions and an end to poverty was a crucial part of his civil rights agenda.)

March 29 

Ohio makes it illegal for children under 18 and women to work more than 10 hours a day - 1852

Sam Walton, founder of the huge and bitterly anti-union Walmart empire, born in Kingfisher, Okla. He once said that his priority was to “Buy American,” but Walmart is now the largest U.S. importer of foreign-made goods—often produced under sweatshop conditions - 1918

“Battle of Wall Street,” police charge members of the United Financial Employees’ Union, striking against the New York Stock Exchange and New York Curb Exchange (now known as the American Stock Exchange). Forty-three workers are arrested in what was to be the first and only strike in the history of either exchange - 1948

National Maritime Union of America merges with National Marine Engineers’ Beneficial Association - 1988
