Tell Your Senators to Protect Public Safety
May 12, 2008

Firefighters, police officers, and emergency medical service personnel are often the first on the scene for emergencies big and small. But tens of thousands of these public safety officers do not have the right to negotiate with their employers, leaving them without a voice at work.

S. 2123 would ensure that all public safety officers have the opportunity to meet with local officials to discuss their jobs and how best to protect the public.

A critical vote on this bill could happen this week and your Senators need to hear from you NOW.

Ask your Senators to support the Public Safety Employer-Employee Cooperation Act (S. 2123).

Tell Wall Street: Unionbusting Doesn't Pay
March 03, 2008

Workers at Atria Senior Living are being threatened and intimidated for trying to form a union.

Caring for our nation's elderly is an important job, and workers at Atria deserve a living wage, affordable healthcare, and the training and support they need to do their jobs well. They also have the right to a free and fair process to decide on forming a union.

Workers at Atria barely make ends meet, yet the highly successful senior living chain is affiliated with a big Wall Street firm called Lazard that has the means to support them. 

It's time to give these Wall Street execs an earful!  Tell the Wall Street execs at Atria and Lazard to stop unionbusting and play fair.

Huge failure at mine safety agency
February 04, 2008

 What's wrong with mine safety czar Richard Stickler?

Coal miner

More than 4,000 mine safety failures in six years. 

Send Stickler a note now!

Many of us watched in horror last summer as miners lost their lives in the Crandall Canyon mine collapse in Utah, and before that, the disasters at Sago, Darby and Aracoma mines. After multiple debacles, you’d think the government would make mine safety a top priority.  Think again.  Recent reports uncovered a huge failure at the federal agency in charge of mine safety.  

The Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) failed to fine more than 4,000 safety & health violations over the last six years for mines that broke regulations.

Richard Stickler, the man responsible for mine safety in this country, needs some help. We put together some ideas for how Mr. Stickler can actually do his job.
