Labor-States Curbing Non-Union Work

Thugs receive co-ordinates of non-socialist citizens
A group that represents nearly 200 nonunion contractors in the region may file a lawsuit seeking to reverse a Westmoreland County resolution they contend favors unionized laborers for government work.

Eileen Watt, president of the Association of Builders and Contractors of Western Pennsylvania, said Wednesday that a labor stabilization agreement signed in 2009 by county commissioners is exclusionary and prohibits nonunion firms from bidding on construction projects.

"It's an unfair practice, and it gives special interests the only right to bid on these projects and leaves everyone else out," Watt said.

She said the labor agreement requires nonunion shops that bid on certain construction projects to register personal information of nonunion workers with local trade councils.

Socialist-communist class warfare roots denied
Karl Marx proposed his political-economic theory in the 19th century. Marx had a fantasy about how history worked.

Civilization began with a system of monarchy. The royalty on top, everyone else a serf or slave. The mercantile system evolves. Wealth concentrated among those who control trade, the buying and selling of things. The captains of industry arrive with the industrial revolution, which Marx hated. Marx imagined a new type of human, one who worked for the collective whole, not himself. In this utopian vision, private property did not exist. If it did, someone would eventually turn a profit with a bigger garden, or more cows. Pretty soon buying up his neighbors' land, using them as hired hands. In other words, capitalist exploitation, which is unfair.

In a Marxist worker's paradise, nobody owns anything. "To each according to his needs," said Marx. An all-powerful socialist government is required to define each need, confiscate assets and crush economic freedom. Marx decided (apparently just because he said so) this centralized dictating government would be temporary, and fade away as a new and better human was created. In theory, society would then enter into a perfect communist order. A communal system where mankind strived for the common good. In the real world, of course, this never happens.

Unlimited government, the eternal false religion of liberals, tried under many names, in many places, never works. Claiming to be at worst a little bit pregnant, liberal-progressives deny their class warfare, socialist-communist roots.

AFL-CIO Strike Bosses Take Credit


It's All in the O-Brotherhood!
World labor is in solidarity with the Federation of Egyptian Trade Unions and its call for the nationwide general strike, aimed at bringing down nearly three decades of Mubarak’s dictatorship.

“The people’s movement for democracy in Egypt and the role unions are playing for freedom and worker rights inspires us and will not be forgotten,” Richard Trumka, president of the AFL-CIO, said in a letter to the Egyptian organizers.

Trumka’s letter was to Kamal Abbas, the general coordinator of the Center for Trade Union and Workers Services, and Abu Eita, leader of the Real Estate Tax Authority Workers. Both organizations have been instrumental in pulling together the FETU, which Trumka welcomed into the international labor movement.

FETU’s first act was to plan the nationwide general strike.

A Jan. 30 press release announcing the formation of the FETU – an alternative to the government-run Egyptian Federation of Trade Unions… stated that “the labor movement is in the heart and soul of the Egyptian Peoples’ revolution and its emphasis on the support for the six requirements as demanded by the Egyptian People’s Revolution.”

The same day, organizers held a press conference in Tahrir Square, announcing the FETU and the “formation of committees in all factories and enterprises to protect, defend them and to set the date for the general strike.”

According to Sharan Burrow, general secretary of the International Trade Union Confederation, “This is a hugely important step for all Egyptians, who have for so long been denied the right to democratic representation at work.”

“Independent unions, which the regime refused to recognize, have organized thousands of local strikes, sit-ins and protests in recent years, and have been a moving force behind the massive mobilization of Egypt’s people that we have been witnessing in recent days,” she continued.

The AFL-CIO is a member of the ITUC, which represents 176 million workers in 151 nations.
