You’ll find the answers and most importantly, how YOU can help in the weeks before Sept. 16 to finally whip this terrible bill, in a special 16-page issue of your Labor Tribune on July 30. The entire paper will be devoted to the RTW issue.Due to overwhelming demand, the Labor Tribune has extended the deadline to subscribe to this special issue until next Wednesday, July 22, to have the paper mailed to members, or Monday, July 27, to order the special issue in bulk.
For those unions that don’t get the Labor Tribune or that only get the paper for their leadership, this is one issue you should consider getting for your members. For details and costs, contact Publisher Ed Finkelstein or Editor Tim Rowden at 314-535-9660 or sign up online.
“The fight against passage of RTW in Missouri did not end with Gov. Nixon’s veto…we strongly urge (every union) to sign up … to place (this special issue) in the hands of (your union) members,” said St. Louis Labor Council President Pat White and Building Trades Council Executive Secretary Jeff Aboussie in a joint letter to all unions.
By supporting the governor’s veto, “The jobs we save will be our own,” White and Aboussie added.
“This is not an expense, but an investment in your members’ future, your union’s future,” Finkelstein said.
