Ep 171 – Farm Workers Fight Back

We start this week following up on several major stories, first and foremost the ratification of the hard fought new contract at UPS. We also discuss the victory of grad student workers at the University of Michigan after a nearly five month struggle. There was major news out of the NLRB this week, we break down the Cemex decision and what the new restrictions on election union busting could mean for the labor movement. Also this week, farm workers in New York were attacked by farm owners who raided and broke up a UFW organizing meeting. The New School continues to hate its workers, trying this week to block student workers from organizing a wall to wall student union. Finally, the fight for a fair deal at the Big 3 automakers is heating up, as the UAW voted overwhelmingly to authorize a strike.
