Ai-jen Poo: Organizing Labor—With Love

Check out YES! Magazine profile on Ai-Jen Poo, NLF Editorial Board Member and Director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance:

“I believe that love is the most powerful force for change in the world...I often compare great campaigns to great love affairs because they’re an incredible container for transformation. You can change policy, but you also change relationships and people in the process.”

Opinion | Union’s Loss Is the South’s Loss, Too

Another take on the recent loss at Nissan:
"With employers and anti-union politicians telling them that unionization would threaten their jobs, Southern workers choose to stick with what they have rather than risk sharing the fate of their poorly paid neighbors."
https://www.nytimes.com/2017/08/12/opinion/sunday/unions-loss-is-the-souths-loss-too.html?_r=0

The region’s meager pay becomes a reason for holding down the federal minimum wage and an excuse for tightfisted employers to stay that way.

Mississippi Nissan workers hope for historic win in 14-year fight to unionize

Nissan workers in Mississippi are set to vote tomorrow and Friday on whether to join the UAW. A campaign that civil rights activist Frank Figgers calls "a historic struggle about overcoming the effects of slavery in Mississippi."

Check out Mike Elk's coverage of the Nissan workers here: https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/jul/24/mississippi-nissan-workers-union-bernie-sanders-civil-rights

Support from Bernie Sanders and Danny Glover helped provide momentum to a campaign ‘about overcoming the effects of slavery’

The Senate Committee just voted on two of Trump's appointments to the NLRB. What does this mean for workers rights across the country?

At Labor’s Crossroads

“Few anticipate the breakthrough and fewer still exhort labor to begin. Labor continues to be the most liberal—and most frustrated—institution in mainstream America.”

The Service Employees International Union (SEIU), the most important union in the country and one of the largest, is a pretty big deal, but it would be an even bigger deal if the American labor movement were not itself in such a tenuous state.

The Future of Unions in the Trump Era

'Labor has endured a long, grinding decline and now only about 11 percent of U.S. workers are union members, with just over six percent represented in the private sector. Connected to this drop in union membership, there has been a decline in middle-class incomes, and a tremendous increase in wealth inequality.'
