"In our glorious fight for civil rights, we must guard against being fooled by false slogans, as 'right to work'. It provides no 'rights' and no 'works'. It's purpose is to destroy labor unions and the freedom of collective bargaining... We demand this fraud be stopped."
- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., 1961
If you’ve never heard of fast track or the Trans-Pacific Partnership, here’s the basics you need to know to understand these trade policies -- and how to stop them.
The Center for American Progress Action Fund and the Economic Policy Institute (EPI) issued reports recently detailing how the right-to-work (RTW) scam hurts workers by weakening collective bargaining and unions’ ability to negotiate good wages and benefits.
You might think a $2 billion budget surplus would make bargaining easier. But that’s not happening as negotiations ratchet up for new contracts that cover 17,500 AFSCME members at the State of Minnesota.
AFSCME International threw down the challenge: It dared locals to sign up 50,000 new members before its July convention. Members in Minnesota and across the country responded – big time.
