Strikers returned to work June 1 with their heads held high, after a victorious 45-day strike that beat back numerous management concessions.

A Network You Can Trust


The Verizon strike is both a test and an opportunity for the whole labor movement. Will we rise to the occasion and back our striking brothers and sisters at Verizon?

As the strike by 39,000 Verizon and Verizon Wireless workers continues into its third week, efforts are underway to broaden picketing at Verizon Wireless stores across the country. Workers at seven Wireless stores in Brooklyn, New York, and Everett, Massachusetts, are on strike, along with wireline workers from Massachusetts to Virginia.

Thirty-nine thousand Verizon workers walked off their jobs April 13, beginning one of the largest strikes in years.

Reform candidates swept national elections in the Association of Professional Flight Attendants, which represents 25,000 crew members at the merged American Airlines and US Airways.

The workers who make Sweet’N Low started the new year with some bitter news. Their factory will shut down in the next few months, likely to make way for luxury condos.

Solidarity Is Key to Beating Trump's Divide-and-Conquer


If there’s one value the labor movement holds highest, it’s solidarity.

A brilliant recent example is Kohler, Wisconsin, where 2,100 factory workers struck against two-tier wages. Most strikers were top-tier workers standing up for their lower-tier brothers and sisters—a point of pride for the union.

This kind of solidarity generally doesn’t make national headlines, though. Instead we’re fed a steady diet of billionaire Donald Trump’s attacks on Mexicans, Muslims, and other working people.

As 38,000 Verizon union members enter their fifth month without a contract, crews of retirees are swinging into action to defend their own health benefits.

Twenty-two hundred Steelworkers, locked out since August 15, are refusing demands for major concessions on health care, retiree benefits, and subcontracting.
