Today in Labor History

Jan. 23, 1936
In Allegany County, MD, workers with the Civilian Conservation Corps, a New Deal era public works program employing unmarried men aged 18-25, are snowbound at Fifteen Mile Creek Camp S-53 when they receive a distress call about a woman in labor who needs to get to a hospital. 20 courageous CCC volunteers dig through miles of snow drifts until the woman is successfully able to be transported.

Stewards Undergo Extensive Training Designed to Sharpen Skills
Updated On: Apr 12, 2012


MAR. 21, 2012 |  Sixty-three of our shop stewards are brushing up on their representational skills at "Education for a Democratic Workplace," a Local 570-sponsored 3-day steward training conducted by Professor Michael Childers from the University of Wisconsin's School for Workers, a university extension of continuing education and outreach.

"This seminar presents a great opportunity for our leaders to learn, but also network with other Local stewards which helps them better understand the issues facing them in their own shops," said Principal Officer Sean Cedenio.

Childers advised stewards to "look at every conversation you have with a member as an opportunity to grow the union." The seminar will conclude tomorrow. More coverage to come.
