Airlines' New Anti-union Legislative Assault

The airline industry is looking for new laws to curtail the right of airline unions to strike, which falls under what's known as the Railway Labor Act of 1926.

Oh and BTW, the airlines' bill was carried last year by John McCain, who sought to effectively destroy the right of unions to strike in favor of government-imposed settlements. Just a reminder to folks like Tapped that McCain has a long history as the enemy of working people. He may take a few high-profile dissenting stands from GOP orthodoxy, but on basic life-and-death issues for working people and unions, he is the enemy.

Thanks for that reminder about McCain. But he still did campaign finance reform.

No relation to John Mccain but did you see the NYT article on McWane out of Tyler, TX. Did an opensecrets check and surprise, surprise, Jeff Sessions from AL and W have both received campaign money from this company. The Frontline piece will be very interesting. If I recall, one of the columnists was involved with the tobacco movie starring Crowe.

I'm beginning to wonder if the mission of the Labor Dept is to protect corporations instead of the workers.
