If you read the American history books that most high school students open every day, you wouldn't learn much about labor unions. And what you did learn would lead you to believe that unions haven’t done much since the early 1900s. Hmmm...


 

The Center for American Progress Action Fund and the Economic Policy Institute (EPI) issued reports recently detailing how the right-to-work (RTW) scam hurts workers by weakening collective bargaining and unions’ ability to negotiate good wages and benefits.


 

You might think a $2 billion budget surplus would make bargaining easier. But that’s not happening as negotiations ratchet up for new contracts that cover 17,500 AFSCME members at the State of Minnesota.


 

AFSCME International threw down the challenge: It dared locals to sign up 50,000 new members before its July convention. Members in Minnesota and across the country responded – big time.


 

We not only want you, we need you! We are looking for more work site stewards. We are the union and we need your support to organize and protect our rights.
