    With the 1935 passage of the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA), the rights of workers in the private sector to form and join unions of their choosing were recognized and codified into law.

    It has been 86 years since passage of the NLRA, and with amendments and numerous court cases, precedents, and rulings it is time to see how workers in the private sector seeking to form or join unions at their workplaces have fared under the NLRA:

    Kentucky Democratic Party

    Frankfort, KY As the Delta variant of the COVID-19 virus rages through the Commonwealth, GOP leaders are choosing to support a deadly virus that has claimed thousands of Kentuckians’ lives in a desperate attempt to gain a political advantage.

    Auditor Mike Harmon, GOP legislative leaders, Treasurer Allison Ball and Agriculture Commissioner Ryan Quarles are refusing to follow the science and C.D.C. guidance that even vaccinated individuals should wear masks indoors due to the rapid spread of the Delta variant.


    In a statement, KDP Chair Colmon Elridge called on these Republican “leaders” to finally quit the political games and put the lives of Kentuckians first.

    “This stunt by GOP ‘leaders’ is a pathetic example of failed leadership,” Elridge said. “COVID-19 is apolitical and our response should be as well. Gov. Beshear has shown the conviction and courage to put politics aside and do what is necessary to save lives. That’s leadership. My question to the GOP is how many more Kentuckians have to get sick and/or die, how many health professionals and families need to be retraumatized, before they take the spread of COVID seriously?”

    One of the most important events in Texas history is underway now. 

    March for Democracy

    The March for Democracy left Georgetown two days ago and will end with a rally at the Texas Capitol at 10AM tomorrow, July 31. The Texas AFL-CIO and other union people, including North Texans, are there.

    Texas icon Willie Nelson will end his pandemic-long silence to perform at the Capitol. The best-known civil rights leaders in America will be there to hear him. The Texas AFL-CIO is posting live videos on Facebook to keep us informed and catch the excitement. Communications Director Ed Sills will call KNON’s “Workers Beat” radio (89.3FM) talk show at 9:50AM to describe the crowd. Meanwhile in Washington, top political leaders are giving their support for the Texas legislators who are fighting for voter rights.

    willi

    Our progressive forces are converging together like never before. In just the last few days, North Texas labor activists have joined public actions for fair contracts, health care, fair treatment for foreign workers, and the right to organize.

    Come Together on Labor Day

    The Dallas AFL-CIO Labor Day breakfast is the premier event of the year for working families. Tickets, tables, brochure ads, and sponsorships are available. Contact Mariah Warwick, our political director now!

    Labor Helps

    Even though the U.S. House is working on it, it is unlikely that the full Congress will be able to save hundreds of thousands of Americans from being evicted from their homes after July 31. The regular national labor communicator’s meeting this week pointed out that renters can still get help through the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, 800-569-4287.

    The Texas AFL-CIO says that anyone who recently drew unemployment compensation can get their health insurance at no cost. Contact healthcare.gov

    From the NAACP

    As the spread of the delta variant of the coronavirus continues to rise, the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released new guidance on face masks.

    The CDC now recommends that people, regardless of their vaccination status, wear a face mask in certain indoor situations where there is a risk of “substantial and high transmission” of COVID-19. This includes schools, retail stores, and some businesses.

    While health disparities leave African Americans vulnerable to COVID-19 at higher rates, our research shows that 51% of African Americans say they are fully vaccinated, and 54% continue to wear masks in public and private settings.

    While we continue to learn more about the coronavirus and its delta and lambda variants, the NAACP’s COVID. Know More portal has information and resources you need to protect yourself, your family, and your community. Visit the website today, and fight back with facts.

    Remember, if one of us is vulnerable, all of us are vulnerable.

    Read. Share. Protect. Visit the COVID Know More information hub for additional insights. We're in this, together.

    New York Times: More Covid Mysteries: There’s much to learn about how the virus spreads.

    Roll Call

    “Responsible investors understand the importance of respecting the rights of working people to come together into unions,” Liz Shuler, AFL-CIO secretary-treasurer, said in an emailed statement. “If we are going to have sustainable economic growth, we need to restore balance to our economy between runaway CEO pay and stagnating worker wages.”

    Google Contract Workers Win First Labor Deal After Nearly 2 Years Of Negotiations

    WESA

    By An-Li Herring

    July 29, 2021

    Nearly two years after unionizing, contract workers based at Google’s Bakery Square office have ratified their first labor contract. In a 51-4 vote tallied Wednesday night, employees of HCL America approved the agreement, ending an unfair labor practices claim against the company that had been pending before the National Labor Relations Board. “We’re super proud that we were able to achieve this contract — it’s a fair contract,” said Amanda Parks, a senior analyst at HCL who was involved in the bargaining process. “The wage increases and job security that we’ll be enjoying has definitely made the past two years more than worth it.”
