Ep 177 – Healthcare Heroes Have Had Enough

We start this week’s episode celebrating the power move by Drew Barrymore’s writing staff turning down an offer to return after being stabbed in the back during the strike. Next we discuss VFX workers at Disney voting unanimous to join IATSE. One of our biggest stories this week is the largest healthcare strike in US history, as 75,000 workers at Kaiser Permanente struck for 3 days in 5 states. We also discuss major new contract wins by academic workers at Tufts and MIT, and a major contract victory by workers at Kumho Tires in Georgia. Finally, we discuss this week’s developments in the UAW’s Stand Up strike, including a monumental win that will shape the future of the entire industry.
