    Some 12,000 pecan shellers in San Antonio, Texas—mostly Latino women—walk off their jobs at 400 factories in what was to become a three-month strike against wage cuts. Strike leader Emma Tenayuca (photo) was eventually hounded out of the state - 1938

    After scoring successes with representation elections conducted under the protective oversight of the California Agricultural Labor Relations Board, the United Farm Workers of America officially ends its historic table grape, lettuce and wine boycotts - 1978


    Union and student pressure forces Harvard University to adopt new labor policies raising wages for lowest-paid workers - 2002

    Five months after Hurricane Katrina, the New Orleans school board fires every teacher in the district in what the United Teachers of New Orleans sees as an effort to break the union and privatize the school system - 2005

  • 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.
