NLRB Affirms Kumho Illegally Suppressed USW Drive

NLRB Affirms Kumho Illegally Suppressed USW Drive | PSLabor:  Your Union Free Advantage | Scoop.it
The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has upheld findings that Kumho Tire illegally threatened and coerced workers at its Macon, Ga., site in a deliberate attempt to stop them from joining our union. More...
Permanent Solutions Labor Consultantss insight:
NLRB sides with USW in labor dispute with Kumho tires dating back to 10/17/2017, almost 3 years later they won the ULP charges against the company. In 2019 they had a second election and the USW union won by only 4 votes. The board made the decision for the union based on some blatant violations of the NLRA. Competent legal counsel, respect for the NLRA election process, a clear understanding of employee issues, a professional supervision team and an experienced labor consultant team will keep these types of amateur mistakes from happening. Just winning a union representation election (RC) is not enough, if afterwards your employees are divided and mistrustful of management, especially their direct supervisors then you have not truly won, resentful workers tend to continue their organizing activities, 2nd and 3rd organizing elections have a higher chance of success. When I was a National Organizing Director for the IBT and USW I use to tell my team, that we only have to win once, the company has to win every time!! Respect and fair treatment for the workforce has to be demonstrated, and after the union campaign has been defeated your team can move forward united.

Unions Are Beginning to Talk About Staving Off a Possible Coup

Unions Are Beginning to Talk About Staving Off a Possible Coup | PSLabor:  Your Union Free Advantage | Scoop.it
“Therefore, be it finally resolved that the Rochester Labor Council, AFL-CIO calls on the National AFL-CIO, all of its affiliate unions, and all other labor organizations in the United States of America to prepare for and enact a general strike of all working people, if necessary, to ensure a Constitutionally mandated peaceful transition of power as a result of the 2020 Presidential Elections.” These words conclude a resolution passed October 8 by the Rochester Central Labor Council.
Permanent Solutions Labor Consultantss insight:
This article was taken from a pro Labor Union organization in Detroit that is headquartered upstairs from another pro Labor Union organization/watch dog over the Teamsters union, this organization is called (TDU) Teamsters for a democratic Union. I know the heads of both of these organizations from my union days and they have been promoting national strikes many times over the years for a verity of reasons. Labor Notes describes themselves on their website as ("Labor Notes is a media and organizing project that has been the voice of union activists who want to put the movement back in the labor movement since 1979. Through our magazine, website, books, conferences, and workshops, we promote organizing, aggressive strategies to fight concessions, alliances with worker centers, and unions that are run by their members") I always find it interesting and educational to read what union officials and union activists are writing.

Hoffa and Vairma Give Green Light to Corruption

Hoffa and Vairma Give Green Light to Corruption | PSLabor:  Your Union Free Advantage | Scoop.it
In a critical test of whether our union leaders can root out corrupt officials who abuse their positions, a narrow majority on the IBT General Executive Board (GEB) voted 12-11 to give a pass to corrupt Teamster power broker Rome Aloise.
Permanent Solutions Labor Consultantss insight:
TDU (Teamsters For a Democratic Union) is an organization made up of rank and file teamster members who’s goal is to rid corruption from the union’s leadership. TDU was largely responsible for Ex IBT President Ron Carey and almost all of his slates rise to power in 1991. They published this article about the failure of IBT President Jimmy Hoffa’s administration to hold Teamsters officials accountable for violating the union’s constitution. It doesn’t surprise me that even in this time of heighten attention of corruption by the UAW union’s top officials, the Teamsters are snubbing their noses at clear ethical violations within their ranks!
