    A Tale of Two Strikes: Click here to check out this week's Labor History Today podcast. On this week’s show, we explore two historic 1970 strikes: the wildcat by 200,000 postal workers and a strike by 150 Garrett County roads workers in western MD.

    A general strike by some 12,000 autoworkers and others in Lansing, Mich., shuts down the city for a month in what was to become known as the city’s “Labor Holiday.” The strike was precipitated by the arrest of nine workers, including the wife of the auto workers local union president: The arrest left three children in the couple’s home unattended - 1937

  • HASC Markup
    Posted On: May 11, 2018

    All

    Below are the 2 amendments to the 2019 NDAA that Shea-porter put forward during markup on Wednesday. Both passed as part of a package of amendments agreed upon by both the majority and minority members of the personnel subcommittee prior to markup. So there was no debate during the markup hearing.

    Even though Dan and I worked closely with Shea-Porter’s staff on the amendment language I am still nervous about the actual language of the amendments that is in the markup. Once the Full HASC report is published we will know more.

    I will be working the Senate personnel subcommittee members staffs leading up to the SASC markup on the 23rd in an attempt to get the language into the SASC markup.

    Although this language is now in the HASC markup it still must survive when the 2019 NDAA goes to the full House for debate, amendments and a final vote. I am sure allies of NGB in Congress may try and get these amendments stricken from the final bill. So our work is not done in the House yet either.
