HMS Host workers ratify 1st contract

HMS Host workers at DCA National Airport ratified their first contract last week. "We won respect from management, job security, seniority rights & more. The best part is, after years of low pay, now no one will make less than $17, with good raises every year," [link removed] tweeted UNITE HERE 23. "We did it!!!"

Today's Labor History

This week's Labor History Today podcast: [link removed] The Tractor Princess. Last week's show: [link removed] Buffalo Soldier turned revolutionary.

President Jimmy Carter invoked the Taft-Hartley law to halt the 1977-78 national contract strike by the United Mine Workers of America. The order was ignored and Carter did little to enforce it. A settlement was reached in late March - 1978

With the Great Depression underway, hundreds of thousands of unemployed workers demonstrated in some 30 cities and towns; close to 100,000 filled Union Square in New York City and were attacked by mounted police - 1930

The Knights of Labor picket to protest the practices of the Southwestern Railroad system, and the company's chief, high-flying Wall Street financier Jay Gould. Some 9,000 workers walked off the job, halting service on 5,000 miles of track. The workers held out for two months, many suffering from hunger, before they finally returned to work - 1886
