7th Annual Soccer Night with the Chicago Fire
Once again, our Annual Soccer Event proved to be yet another great success. Although the event was threatened by bad weather, the rain held off enough to allow for a fun-filled night. This was our 7th annual event at Toyota Park, and one of our most successful one yet. Members and their families came from as far as Waukegan, IL to enjoy the game and participate in the activities.

September 30, 2014 -- This month started off with the Southwest Airlines (SWA) Facility Maintenance Technician (FMT) negotiations in Dallas, Texas.

Aircraft Maintenance Technician (AMT) negotiations also continued this month and the negotiation updates (video and written) for all sessions have been posted to the AMFA National Website.

CSC Bargaining Update - Sept. 29, 2014
09/29/14 - CWA Local 2222
Your Bargaining Committee met with Management again today. We were not successful in completing our negotiations. Frankly only wages are still on the table and the Company's "Last, Best and Final" offer is insulting.  No new date to reconvene has been scheduled. CWA will have our research team review the progress we have made to date.

Bring Haley Home
09/29/14 - AFSCME Local 132
Let’s start with some basic concepts. The Office of Child Care licenses child care in Oregon. They can come in and put conditions on those licenses. Most often these conditions include things like “fireplace shall not be used during hours on child care license.”  These conditions limit what the child care provider can do DURING child care hours.  Makes sense, right.

Supporter, Let's admit it -- sometimes, voting seems pointless. At least, that's what wealthy CEOs want us to think. They're counting on us to skip the elections this November. They know that if voters like us stay home, working-class champions won't get elected this year.
