“Obama Is Bringing Overtime Pay To Millions Of Workers” – http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2016/05/02/obama-overtime-pay_n_10014052.html

This is exactly why we need to vote with labor. This current administration hasn’t always been labor’s best friend, but he still stands with us when it counts. I’m glad to see more American’s getting their justified income for their work performed.

Our IAMAW President Responds to the TPP

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestmail

Our President, Robert Martinez Jr., responded to the Obama administration signing the Trans Pacific Partnership today.
I know we can all agree that today is a sad day for the working and working poor in the United States of America. Yet again our elected politicians, all of them, have sold us out for profit and ideological sympathy. Republicans and democrats in Congress approved this treaty, that was signed today. Remember who signed for it in November. Look who’s running against them and see what they say.
Our representative democratic republic is only as good as those we vote for. Ignore the tv, Facebook, YouTube, billboard, and radio ads. Look into each candidate for yourself. Our primaries are on March 1st. Let’s get our rights back with this election. Let’s unite for the working rights our forefathers fought and died for. For what our veterans fought and died for. America is great, let’s see how great we can make it. Let’s not make it great again, let’s make it better then it’s ever been.
See Pres. Martinez’s official response here.

Honor the legacy of the greatest man of the last fifty years

Today we honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. A man who was never content with helping only once. Even after his greatest accomplishments, the eventual passage if the civil rights act, he kept fighting for labor and poverty.
Please remember when he died in 1968, he was fighting for striking workers in Memphis.
Let’s continue his fight forward to create a stronger middle class. The middle class he had. The middle class that is dying since he left us.

Sen. Sanders (I-VT) bill, The Workplace Democracy Act

A new bill, still in committee, needs our support! It has a very uphill battle as the current congress is unlikely to pass a labor bill, but if enough support gets through, it could! Contact your senators and spread the word!
