Menard’s Settles OPEIU Labor Law Violations Case With NLRB - 45,000 Workers Win Class Action Rights

At least 45,000 workers have won class-action lawsuit rights in a National Labor Relations Board case against Menard’s.

Verizon Workers Need Your Help

This morning, working people at Verizon went on strike. It’s never good when working families have to take this step, but Verizon workers felt they had no choice.

They’re fighting to create a better workplace for themselves and those who come after them.

Click here to immediately sign our petition to tell Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam, "Enough is enough. Settle a fair contract with working people at Verizon and Verizon Wireless now."
