Rank-and-file autoworkers win fight for safety

first_imgWorking in an auto plant is a dangerous job. From slippery floors to toxic chemicals to improperly maintained equipment, autoworkers deal with a range of safety hazards every day. Now there is COVID-19.Here, Detroit autoworkers are ready to fight for a decent contract. Now they are fighting for their lives. Labor Day 2019. (WW Photo: Martha Grevatt)On any given shift hundreds, even thousands, work under one roof. Plants setups do not allow 6-foot “social distancing” between workers. Moreover, workers at Ford, General Motors and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles have complained that cleaning of “high touch” areas has been minimal, restroom sinks do not have hot water, and job stations were not being cleaned between shifts or when workers rotate from one job station to the next.At multiple plants run by the three companies, there are workers who have tested positive for COVID-19. Yet in Michigan, with the highest number of auto plants, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s March 15 order to close “non-essential” businesses contained an exemption for “manufacturing.” Other states were also allowing the plants to stay open, even after banning “large gatherings” —  which happen every workday in a big plant.Early on, the United Auto Workers union should have insisted that the plants be closed. Instead, union heads and company heads formed a “joint task force.” Their “solutions” contained little more than unkept promises to sanitize the workplace and limits on how many workers could sit at one break table. All the while, salaried employees were being encouraged to telecommute.Rank-and-file workers were not appeased. As United All Workers for Democracy stated, “We do not believe the answer to this crisis is another joint program between high-ranking union officials and auto executives, where those who are making the decisions on what the proper protocol should be inside of the plants will not have to live with the consequences of those decisions. We believe the correct decision to make in regards to our union leadership would be to demand a shutdown of all facilities and for workers to be paid their full wages until these facilities are safe to work inside of again.” ( UAWD and another rank-and-file group, Autoworker Caravan, initiated petition campaigns to close the plants. Local union leaders also raised that demand.Strikes, walkouts at auto plantsMeanwhile autoworkers began to take matters into their own hands. A group of 17 at FCA’s Warren, Mich., assembly plant stopped work on March 16. Before that, FCA workers in Italy and Canada held strikes to protest the unsafe working conditions they were subjected to.On March 18, workers at FCA’s Sterling Heights, Mich., assembly plant reported to work at 5 a.m., but refused to handle any parts or touch any equipment. By 8  a.m. all the plant’s workers were sent home and FCA stopped production at the plant. Later that day the UAW announced that the three companies had agreed to close the plants until at least March 30. That was a huge victory.However, thousands are still working under conditions that pose a risk of infection. These include many employed by third parties which supply parts to the Detroit Three big auto companies or perform janitorial services. Some Detroit Three warehouses remain open.Hundreds of construction workers hired by subcontractors staged a walkout at a new FCA plant being built in Detroit. At least two of the skilled tradespeople have tested positive for COVID-19. FCA has since temporarily halted construction work on the new plant.Grevatt, trustee of UAW Local 869, retired last year from FCA after 31 years.

House Committee to Hold Hearing on Glyphosate Allegations

first_img The House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology announced that it may soon hold a hearing on the International Agency for Cancer Research’s 2015 assessment that glyphosate is a carcinogen. The Committee has been looking into the IARC, which receives American taxpayer funding, and sent a letter to the agency’s director citing concerns over the “scientific integrity” of the group. It also sheds light on the allegations of data manipulation in the IARC review of glyphosate.The letter questions the involvement of Christopher Portier, a statistician with no previous experience regarding glyphosate, who testified during a high-profile European hearing that he was in favor of banning the herbicide. At the same time Portier chaired the IARC Working Group that proposed the assessment on glyphosate, he was also a private litigation consultant for two law firms, directly benefitting from the classification of glyphosate as a “probable” carcinogen.The House Committee may soon be asking IARC officials to appear before them to give testimony about the methodology they used to come up with their findings.Source: NAFB News Service SHARE Facebook Twitter By Hoosier Ag Today – Nov 6, 2017 Previous articleGrain Storage ConsiderationsNext articleNPPC Urges Congress to Fund Ag Research Hoosier Ag Today House Committee to Hold Hearing on Glyphosate Allegations Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News House Committee to Hold Hearing on Glyphosate Allegations SHARElast_img read more

They have their fingers on chain guns. They are hearing the blast of gunfire, the whoop of helicopters and roar of planes overhead. They are hauling supplies and watching for dangerous explosives along the roadways.”Bowden said because today’s military is such a well-oiled machine, the fighting men and women will not be found without ammunition like those farmers and tradesmen on Breed’s Hill more than 200 years ago.“All branches of our military have a job to do and they are doing it,” Bowden said. “We are an all volunteer army and it’s an army that fights with the spirit of Breed’s Hill. But we are not a military nation. We don’t want to occupy another country but we are willing to fight for causes that we believe in.” Sponsored Content Published 12:00 am Thursday, November 12, 2009 Singer, songwriter Lenny Trawick set the stage for the Veteran’s Day Program at Elam Baptist Church in Elamville Wednesday with the song he wrote for his dad titled “An Ordinary Man.”Col. (ret.) Lawrence Bowden echoed Trawick’s sentiment that America’s wars have always been fought by “ordinary men.”“In 1775, a ragtag bunch of colonists — farmers, tradesmen and shopkeepers — on Breed’s Hill in Boston turned back the mighty British army,” Bowden said. “The British lost 1,000 men and would have lost more except the American militia ran out of powder.It was the will of that ragtail bunch that enabled them to defeat the British. Nobody could stop them. Somehow that will has come down to us from that line of spirited men. It’s the spirit of Breed’s Hill.”center_img Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Email the author Bowden served during the Korean War and said that, aside from his family, his service to his country is the most meaningful thing in his life.“I’m just an ordinary man who loves his country and is proud to have served it,” he said. “As a veteran, I don’t think that my country owes me a popeyed thing. But we do owe a deep debt of gratitude to our wounded warriors. We need to keep them in our prayers every day.”The Veterans Day Program was sponsored by VFW Post 7055 in Brundidge and held at Elam Baptist Church Cemetery.
