Sign our petition to support the Staten Island Ferry workers


For more than 10 years, the Staten Island Ferry workers have been fighting for a new contract with the New York City Department of Transportation. Workers’ wages and benefits have not changed since 2010, when their last contract expired. Tell New York City Mayor Eric Adams that this is unacceptable.

Stagnant wages and benefits have created high turnover. With fewer workers available to operate the ferries, there has been decreased and unreliable ferry service for the 20 million passengers who use the ferry each year.
 
City officials have used the pandemic as a scapegoat and blame workers for the service issues instead of taking responsibility for their own mismanagement. Last week, city officials escalated from blaming the pandemic to accusing workers of an illegal work action that they called a “sick out.”

AFL-CIO Applauds Senate Passage of the Inflation Reduction Act

AFL-CIO President Liz Shuler on today’s Senate victory for working people:

Today the Senate passed legislation that will transform the lives of working families at every level, and we urge the House of Representatives to pass this bill swiftly and send it to President Biden’s desk. 

This bill will reshape the future and deliver real help to working families by reducing rising energy and health care costs. Enacting clean energy tax incentives with labor standards and domestic content requirements will create good-paying jobs in construction and manufacturing right here in America. And this legislation will address long overdue changes to our tax system that will finally make the most profitable corporations pay their fair share. 

The Inflation Reduction Act will reduce climate pollution by 40%, keeping President Biden’s promise to make the United States a global leader in the fight against climate change. These incentives will spur the  economic transformation we need to address the climate crisis, make clean energy more accessible and affordable and direct investments to underserved communities. 

The effects of this legislation will improve the lives of millions of Americans struggling to afford health care, seniors trying to pay for their prescriptions and future generations who will be able to see the impacts of drastically reduced carbon emissions. 

While this bill represents an incredible step forward, we know the fight for climate and economic justice is not over. The AFL-CIO’s 12.5 million members are united in support for this legislation, and we urge Congress to move quickly to get this passed and signed into law.

Beto for Texas Campaign Staff Ratify First Contract, A Milestone in Texas Politics

HOUSTON, TEXAS (July 26, 2022) -- Staffers on the Beto for Texas (BFT) campaign ratified their union contract last month, becoming the first statewide campaign in the Lone Star State to do so.

129 staffers in organizing, canvassing, press, scheduling, data, coordination, events, finance and other roles are all covered under the terms of agreement. Campaigners will join OPEIU Local 277 for the duration of the campaign.

"We are proud to join the labor movement and to be the first Texas statewide campaign to unionize," said Rocio Dumey, an organizer on the campaign. "Like Beto, we practice what we preach. We want to send a message that every worker in this state should have the right to demand better wages, benefits, and working conditions. We want to join them in that fight.”
