Workers in Alabama – and all across America – are voting on whether to organize a union in their workplace. It’s a vitally important choice – one that should be made without intimidation or threats by employers.
Every worker should have a free and fair choice to join a union.
Amazon already pays its employees a $15/hr. minimum wage but some of its employees in Bessemer, Alabama want better working conditions according to @RWDSU President Stuart Appelbaum, who also welcomed Sunday's tweet from President Biden supporting the workers' right to choose.
"This campaign began when workers came to us. The facility only opened last March, and already people felt that the conditions there were unbearable, and there needed to be change" -@sappelbaum on how the @BAmazonUnion fight began! #UnionYes #BAmazonUnion
We are confident that @GovRaimondo will bring the same leadership qualities that produced one of the nation’s fastest growing economies, while supporting the rights of workers to have a voice on the job, to the task of being the next U.S. Secretary of Commerce.
The AFL-CIO urges Senate support for the confirmation of RI Governor @GinaRaimondo as the U.S. Sec'y of Commerce. Gov. Raimondo has a proven record of economic leadership that created economic opportunity and tens of thousands of good paying jobs for all Rhode Islanders.
White House OMB supports H.R. 1: "The Administration supports House passage of H.R. 1, the For the People Act of 2021 ...This landmark legislation is urgently needed to protect the right to vote and the integrity of our elections, and to repair and strengthen American democracy."
