Unions See Their Star Rising

The United States is the only industrialized nation to have a "union avoidance" industry of any size engaged in helping management resist unionization, undermine union strength, or unload existing unions. This industry, consisting of dozens of law firms and consultancies, has ballooned since the 1970s. Still, union organizers are optimistic as public opinion shifts in favor of organized labor.

Strike at Big Shipyard Is Yet Another Effect of Katrina

The long arm of Hurricane Katrina has pushed thousands off the job and on strike at one of the nation's biggest shipyards, workers and union officials say. On Thursday, nearly 7,000 workers went on strike at the Ingalls shipyard, owned by Northrop Grumman, which builds ships for the Navy. On the picket line Monday, strikers said they were demanding better wages and benefits to make up for sharp post-Katrina increases in the price of everything from milk to gas to rent, which they said are bringing family finances to the breaking point.
