Carpenters 57 undercuts area standards!

The Saint Louis Carpenters District Council has chartered an electrical union that pays less than the area standards established for electric work in the Saint Louis region. The Carpenters new union (dubbed "57") allows the General Contractors to promote 100% union construction whilst paying below the area standards. Many customers believe that informational pickets are established based on union affiliation - this common misconception is false. Anyone paying less than the area wage rates established for a region can be picketed REGARDLESS of whether they are union or non-union. According to the National Labor Relations Board, projects that use the Carpenters Local 57 can still be picketed even though they claim a 100% union project!
 

IBEW Museum Curator Curtis Bateman

This is a portion of a Periscope live stream broadcast from February 2, 2016 wherein IBEW Museum curator Curtis Bateman gives us an overview of the museum contents. Unfortunately the museum is in the lower level of the International Office Headquarters and we were struggling to maintain an adequate signal for live viewers. As a result Periscope clipped of the first half of the broadcast and even though the phone saved the file it is very poor quality

Trading Up: William Spriggs | Trade | AFL-CIO Video

Global trade agreements have become a critical part of the national debate about the economic policies our country needs to ensure broadly shared prosperity today and in the future. This convening will examine the impacts of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), the U.S.-EU Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) and the Trade in Services Agreement (TISA) on jobs, wages, national security and democratic accountability. Every remaining presidential candidate is on the record opposing the TPP. While proponents of the agreement reluctantly admit that corporate trade deals do have a down-side, they contend that the TPP is vital to the U.S. economy and that an improved Trade Adjustment Assistance program will help the small number of workers who are negatively impacted. Proponents also argue that trade is a national security issue, that passage of the TPP puts the U.S. in charge of writing global trade rules and that rejection of the agreement will cede future control of trade to China. Does the process and substance of international trade and investment deals work for working families globally? This conference will examine the arguments, the evidence and the alternatives. There is no cost to participate. Follow the AFL-CIO: http://www.aflcio.org http://facebook.com/aflcio http://twitter.com/aflcio https://www.youtube.com/aflcio
