Bush Declares War on Labor

Bush Declares War on Labor

Bush is officially seeking a Taft-Hartley injunction in the dockworker lockout.

Update: It turns out that Bush’s own mediator had negotiated a
30-day extension of the union contract, which the ILWU had agreed to. Management had not, so Bush rewarded them with a Taft-Hartley injunction. On CNN, AFL-CIO’s Rich Trumka declared that this was the first time in American history that a Taft-Hartley injunction had been issued during a lockout. He condemned the Bush administration’s collusion with management.

Here are some actions you can take in support of the dockworkers:

  • a link to send a message to retailers who have promoted the injunction

  • ILWU’s activist toolkit of sample support letters and resolutions.

  • Vote in this online poll against Bush injunction
