Today in Labor History

Dec. 10, 1948
Today is International Human Rights Day, commemorating the signing at the United Nations of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which states, in part: everyone has the right to good working conditions, equal pay for equal work, fair compensation, the right to form and join a trade union, and limited working hours. “Everyone has the right to form and join trade unions for the protection of his interests.”

Don't Miss Registration Deadline for November Election
Posted On: Sep 20, 2012

Got family and friends living in other states? Jump over to Teamsters.org for the list of registration deadlines and website addresses for every state and pass that info along to your folks.

Why is it important? From the IBT:

"In states across the country, new laws have gone into effect that could potentially prevent you from voting. The conservative crusade for voter identification laws is little more than a way to disenfranchise poor people and minorities. It's important to know the laws in your state."

This election is likely to be the most important one in our lifetime. Please do your part to ensure everyone you know has the opportunity to cast their ballot in November.

Oh and by the way, Our Time (Standing Up for Young Americans) is a great website for the under thirty-somethings in your life. Pass it on.
