141 Video Report: How the Current Political Landscape Impacts Airline Workers
This week, we talk with Dave Roderick about how the new administration in Washington is making changes and setting their agenda for organized labor and all working people.
Dave explains how President Biden’s appointments to his cabinet, and to federal agencies that make and enforce regulations and safety programs in the workplace will affect the future of work in the United States. He also discusses the PRO Act (H.R. 2474, Protecting the Right to Organize Act) the most important piece of pro-labor legislation in decades.
