Advancing Workers' Rights

Pat Eiding and Ellen Slack for The Philadelphia Daily News write about the historic significance of December as the month that the UN General Assembly adopted in 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which includes the right to employment and economic well- being. Eiding and Slack write: "Sadly, the US, a nation that prides itself on being a world leader, has not been a leader in the area of workers' rights - that is, the right of workers to organize and bargain collectively."

Union Protests "Atmosphere of Fear" at FreshDirect

Sewell Chan, The New York Times: "Nearly two weeks after FreshDirect let go of scores of immigrant workers, political leaders, labor organizers and other supporters of the workers rallied outside the company's warehouse and headquarters in Long Island City, Queens, this afternoon, accusing the company of ousting the workers to foil a coming unionization vote."

Nightmare Before Christmas

Bob Herbert, writing for The New York Times, says, "I had a conversation the other day with Andrew Stern, president of the Service Employees International Union. He mentioned a poll of working families that had shown that their belief in that mythical dream that has sustained so many generations for so long is fading faster than sunlight on a December afternoon."
