In cases such as this, the union is recognized legally as the exclusive representative of all the employees. Under Section 8(a)(5), it is a violation ...

The financial reform bill is finally in its home stretch in the Senate, but Americans have yet to fully engage on the issue.  In fact, in recent weeks as I’ve worked with various grassroots leaders across the country to discuss the bill, its impacts on our economy and on us as American citizens, I must admit, it’s probably the first time I’ve ever found myself frustrated at the progress of activism. It’s a complex issue, and let’s face it, not exactly an exciting one either.  But that’s precisely what the left is counting on.  So, whenever I find myself feeling frustrated that others might not ... market research, surveys and trends
Liquidation Information
The hopes of Whole Foods Market Team members in Madison, WI to secure a labor contract to ensure their involvement in decisions affecting them may have suffered the definitive blow November 2002 as the company, citing two petitions from team workers, refused to recognize the UFCW Local 1444; denying the National Labor Relations Board the right to conduct a formal reelection. As a former bakery team member of the Madison store involved in the original organizing effort, this chain of events is routine. I was terminated from Whole Foods Market and here is my story: On a sunny day in May 2002, I exited Whole Foods to enjoy the ... market research, surveys and trends

Lansing: Economy - Major Industries and Commercial Activity
The state government is naturally the most significant employer within the city.

Sean Penn and Wyclef Jean: Hollywood, hip hop and Haiti
Two things we know for sure: Hollywood and hip hop get media attention. And for Haiti, that translates into big media hype and megaphones for actor Sean Penn and rapper-turned-presidential candidate, Wyclef Jean. Forget that people’s trust and naive responses to celebrities-turned-scholar-on-Haiti and Haiti’s future are unseemly and utterly appalling. Think: How may we use this upcoming and unprecedented three-month media glare – the elections are scheduled for Nov. 28, 2010 – to help the 2 million Haitians made homeless by the earthquake stay alive, sheltered, not in rotted tents but more permanent abodes, with water, food, ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Our organization has been run very succesfully by a visionary owner with a traditional management style for the past 25 years. Our numbers, if submitted, would place us in the National Top 500 Remodelers. This year we have seen an increase in sales and are currently behind on installations. Recently our crews have begun resisting changes, as issued by the owner, complaining of low pay, distrust, and unequal treatment. Productivity is in sharp decline, service calls are on the rise, and customer complaints are increasing. In a couple of weeks, I will be introducing a fleet management system paired with new disciplinary ...
