Biden expected to usher in an era of worker-friendly labor policies

Among the most immediate changes will be new leadership at the National Labor Relations Board and Department of Labor, the latter of which is currently helmed by Eugene Scalia, a former corporate attorney who has been criticized by labor leaders for siding with industry over employees.

The Trump administration’s pro-business approach is likely to get a pro-worker overhaul under President-elect Joe Biden, who is expected to push to make it easier to unionize and hold employers accountable for working conditions.

Labor leaders have convinced themselves, over these many fallow years, that “access” is power.

The development of a social democratic faction in the Democratic Party has given labor a chance to punch above its weight. But access alone isn't power.

Diversity Lacking as AFL-CIO Unions Mull Labor Chief Choices (1)

Biden is a staunch advocate of unions, whose leaders are quick to point out that a union official hasn’t been tapped to run the U.S. Labor Department since President Richard Nixon’s ill-fated second term.

The country’s largest labor federation has told its member unions that four possible contenders for labor secretary are drawing support within the ranks, an emerging political fault line for President-elect Joe Biden to navigate.

‘There’s a war on organizing, collective bargaining, unions and workers’: Biden wants to undo Trump executive orders on federal workers

Major floods in Manila as typhoon batters Philippines

Nearly three million households in and around Manila were without power as people waded through waist-high floods, carrying valuables and pets. While tens of thousands of homes in low-lying suburbs were submerged by the floods, prompting residents to scramble onto rooftops awaiting rescue.

The third typhoon to hit the storm-battered Philippines in as many weeks caused major flooding in Manila on Thursday, trapping people on rooftops and claiming at least two lives in another part of the country.

🗳 Americans across race, place of origin, and zip code turned out in record numbers to stand with and for each other, despite the pandemic and deliberate barriers from day-long lines to eliminated drop boxes.

Voters overwhelmingly chose Joe Biden to move forward together toward a better future.

🗽 There are tens of millions of votes left to count. Local election administrators are hard at work counting them now, and every hour that goes by is emphasizing the voters’ decisive choice. It’s taken decades of organizing, marching, and striking to win good pay, benefits, and dignity on the job. We can wait for accurate Nevada results.

☑️ The will of the people is clear: We have chosen new leaders, and we will demand every vote is counted and swear in a government of, by, and for the people. We will take back our country and elect Joe Biden.

Labor leaders propose a general strike if Trump loses but does not accept the results

Historically, mass strikes have been effective means of forcing political outcomes; such labor actions can effectively shut down all economic activity, crippling business and factory owners who rely on their workers' labor in order to profit across all sectors.

The United States has never had a nationwide general strike. Here's what that would look like

Mr. Biden’s performance across the electoral map appears to put him in a stronger position heading into Election Day than any presidential candidate since at least 2008, when in the midst of a global economic crisis Barack Obama captured the White House with 365 Electoral College votes and Mr. Biden at his side.

Joseph R. Biden Jr. leads President Trump in Pennsylvania, Florida, Arizona and, by a wide margin, in Wisconsin, according to a Times/Siena College poll.

PMAA

People’s Media Advocacy Asia (PMAA) was founded in 2015 with the intent to build a grass-roots social media network for labour groups to air their campaigns and promote human rights in the workplace. The mission of PMAA is to produce labour journalism and independent media for and by the people on labour issues that the mainstream press tends to avoid.

A key focus of our efforts is our core project called, “Labour Pulse: Unions on the workplace beat”, which provides specialized media training to rank-and-file members of Filipino trade unions. These workers themselves will become “Labour Pulse” reporters, investigating violations of human rights in the workplace, covering labour actions, publicizing on-going campaigns, and promoting labour’s legislative agenda.

While the mainstream press is slow to cover labour stories, violations of workers’ rights and their workplace safety continues unabated. PMAA fills this void, ensuring that major violations do not go unreported. To this end, PMAA has also established a media centre to improve the viability of Philippine labour campaigns, managing labour’s social media presence via the Centre for Peoples Media (CPM).
