Apologies for not updating the last week. We’re into exams and, as usual, that becomes consuming. One more week of it and then break. Here’s Steve Downes giving some background before the recent wins by reformers in TWU Local 100 and Teamsters Local 804 in New York City. It’s pessimistic, but it is hard not to share much of the assessment of the US labor “movement.” Things can and do change quickly though. Even when all of your antennae are telling you things are going to go one way something happens and they go another. Wins like those in New York could translate into greater struggle with the bosses and struggle changes things.
