 On labor day…..for those out there who think elections don’t matter or it’s not important who gets to appoint Supreme Court justices…’s an historic case decided on a 5 to 4 split of that court that decided that we had a right to our Union. If they had their way today, there are so many forces in the country who would reverse this in a minute. We can’t ever let that happen. Hope you all have a good labor day holiday.

USW Comments on Alcoa Proposed Split

 Bargaining for the American Dream

 Newly Formed Workers Comp. Committee Members


Many Americans know that the United States is not a democracy but a “corporatocracy,” in which we are ruled by a partnership of giant corporations, the extremely wealthy elite and corporate-collaborator government officials. However, the truth of such tyranny is not enough to set most of us free to take action. Too many of us have become pacified by corporatocracy-created institutions and culture.

he United States is in the final stages of negotiating the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a massive free-trade agreement with Mexico, Canada, Japan, Singapore and seven other countries. Who will benefit from the TPP? American workers? Consumers? Small businesses? Taxpayers? Or the biggest multinational corporations in the world?
