Today in Labor History

Feb. 26, 2004
The UFCW and employers reached an agreement to end the nearly five-month-long grocery strike and lockout of 59,000 workers in Southern California. The strike was fueled by management’s demand to strip workers of their healthcare benefits. The new two-tier contract required employees to pay for healthcare benefits for the first time, included no raises, and paid new hires less and put them in a different healthcare plan.

Labor Dept. Hires Union Busters to Oversee Unions
Posted On: Feb 11, 2020
Feb. 11, 2020  | U.S. LABOR | Within the Department of Labor, there is a section that is devoted to providing oversight to labor unions. It is responsible for auditing financial disclosures and investigating officer corruption. Labor Secretary Eugene Scalia, has hired two new people to work in this oversight role who has a long history of working against unions. Rusty Brown, worked as a union-avoidance consultant. He helped to decertify a union of 27,000 home care workers in Minnesota and pushed the Labor Department to investigate a prominent Texas worker center that was a vocal critic of dangerous conditions in the construction industry. He will begin work in the Office of Labor-Management Standards (OLMS). The other hire, Trey Kovacs will work as a “special assistant” to OLMS… “It’s no surprise that the Trump Administration continues to pack the Department of Labor with people who are hostile to workers…” Trade & Union Digest
