Teaming up for a healthy workplace

Last week, AFSCME Maryland teamed up with the teachers' unions in support of HB 900/SB 355 (Public Buildings - Indoor Air Quality). "We all deserve to work in safe & healthy environments," [link removed] tweeted AFSCME Maryland.

2023 EVENING WITH LABOR PREVIEW: OPEIU 2, IATSE 22 & UFCW 400 to receive organizing awards

The Organizing Awards recognize efforts to bring the benefits of unionization to unorganized workers in the Metro Washington area. This year's winners are OPEIU 2, IATSE 22, and UFCW 400. The 2023 Evening with Labor will be held this Friday, March 3, at Martin's Crosswinds in Greenbelt; [link removed] click here to order tickets.


OPEIU 2: Continuing its years-long streak of nonprofit organizing, Local 2 remains one of the most active and successful unions to win campaigns with diverse groups of nonprofit workers. Between 2021-2022, employees at the Association of Community College Trustees (ACCT), DC SAFE, Defenders of Wildlife, The Public Interest Network, EMILY's List, MADRE, the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO), the Leadership Council on Civil and Human Rights, and the International Foundation for Electoral Systems (IFES) all - about 1,000 new members -- won unions with OPEIU Local 2. Contract bargaining is now underway as Local 2's new members fight to secure their rights and build a powerful coalition of unionized nonprofit employees under OPEIU's Nonprofit Employees United (NEU), a growing initiative that brings member leaders together to improve their workplaces as a united front.


IATSE 22: IATSE Local 22 has organized community theatres, including 40 at the Signature Theatre and more than 60 at the Shakespeare Theatre.

UFCW 400: UFCW 400 organized seven workplaces covering 260 workers' including workers at Politics and Prose, Union Kitchen, Kaiser Permanente, MOM's Organic Market, La Colombe Coffee Roasters, Zen Leaf, and Potomac Holistics.

Labor Quote: Quentin Blackman
"I'm proud to be a part of the Senate community that helped make this happen. I know I spoke to so many of the Senators myself, some several times."

As one of dozens of Senate cafeteria workers who received layoff notices three times in 18 months, Blackman - a member of UNITE HERE 23 -- was a key leader in helping to secure a first-ever union contract for dining hall workers at the U.S. Senate.

Today's Labor History

This week's Labor History Today podcast: [link removed] Buffalo Soldier turned revolutionary. Last week's show: [link removed] Celebrating Black History Month.

After five years of labor by 21,000 workers, 112 of whom were killed on the job, the Hoover Dam (Boulder Dam) is completed and turned over to the government. Citizens were so mad at Pres. Herbert Hoover, for whom the dam had been named, that it was later changed to Boulder Dam, being located near Boulder City, Nev - 1936

CIO president John L. Lewis and U.S. Steel President Myron Taylor sign a landmark contract in which the bitterly anti-union company officially recognized the CIO as sole negotiator for the company's unionized workers. Included: the adoption of overtime pay, the 40-hour work week, and a big pay hike - 1937

Screen Actors Guild member Hattie McDaniel becomes the first African-American to win an Academy Award, honored for her portrayal of "Mammy" in "Gone with the Wind" (Actually leap year Feb. 29) - 1940
