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.
