nacted in 1935, the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) (49 Stat. 449) is the nation's basic labor relations statute. The act's provisions govern the relationship among employers, employees, and their labor unions in the private sector. The act also established the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), an independent federal agency that administers and interprets the statute and enforces its terms. Often described as the "heart" of the act, section 7 of the statute reflects the law's basic purposes. It provides that "employees shall have the right to self-organization, to form, join, or assist ...

The overlooked issue in the Westin Hotel labor dispute « On Politics
The hotel workers enmeshed in a labor dispute with the management of the Westin Hotel in Providence have been the subject of a joust between Rhode Island Democrats and Republicans over the prickly topic of labor-management relations. WRNI political analyst Scott MacKay explores an issue none of the politicians are talking about. Lisa Gill of Providence is a 22-year old housekeeper at the Westin Hotel, one of the crown jewels of Providence’s downtown rebirth. She changes sheets, cleans bathrooms and tidies up after the hotel’s guests. Until March, her union job paid her 14 dollars and 37 cents an hour. Health insurance for her ... market research, surveys and trends
Leo Hindery, Jr.: China Trade Reform: Mission (Not Yet) Accomplished
Last week, as the portion of the annual two-day US-China summit in Beijing regarding trade came to a close, I half-expected Treasury Secretary Geithner to tack up a banner on the wall of the Great Hall and declare "Mission Accomplished". While Mr. Geithner didn't go that far, he certainly made it clear both before and after the summit that at least in his mind we've made great progress in reforming our deeply troubled trade relations with China. Frankly, I couldn't disagree more with his assessment. My doubts are bolstered by the few words of the President of China himself, who in his closing speech for ... market research, surveys and trends


The rebirth of labor relations: a convergence of forces will make ...
Among the surge of political, economic and demographic factors elevating the importance of labor relations skills, the most important motivation for HR professionals to strengthen their labor relations expertise might be personal. Negotiating a collective bargaining agreement (CBA) with a single union representing 300 to 400 employees financially commits a company to millions of dollars during the course of the agreement, notes Andrea Terrillion, director of labor relations programs at Cornell University's Industrial and Labor Relations School. "Nobody, not even the CEO, has the discretion to write that check on his or ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Why We Need EFCA | The American Prospect
Despite its paltry membership, the U.S. labor movement remains the nation's most potent force for progressive change and the most effective vehicle for electing Democrats. Three weeks before the November election, The New York Times Magazine ran a cover story that asked, "Will Gun-Toting, Churchgoing White Guys Pull the Lever for Obama?" When the polls closed, the question was answered: Nationwide, white men, white women, working-class whites, white gun owners, and white weekly churchgoers supported McCain by wide margins. But a significant number of whites in each category broke ranks and voted for Obama -- enough to help ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
NJ State Opera owes $230K to vendors, contract workers months after 'Porgy and ...
The New Jersey State Opera hold a rehearsal May 12 for the "Porgy and Bess" production at Newark Symphony Hall. NEWARK — The New Jersey State Opera’s production of "Porgy and Bess" in May was heralded as both a cultural milestone for Newark and the rebirth of the company. With a cast of 18 led by Metropolitan Opera regular Gregg Baker, a chorus of 30 and an 52-piece orchestra, the Gershwin classic was the first full production the company had presented in five years. But two months after the performances, opera officials owe about $230,000 — a third of all costs — to a variety of ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
The triumph of nihilism
Latham makes this sport easy to participate in by his bullying tactics - but they are tactics he learnt from his own kind. It is worth remembering after all that Latham was a man chosen by the Labor Party to become prime minister in 2004. Current politicians may like to treat him as the court jester or the village madman, but Latham was once king of one of Australia's partisan courts. His jibes and antics hurt because they are based on the truth that the party political system has been so hollowed out that it encourages the Lathamesque. The hatred of the political class towards Latham is merely "the rage of Caliban ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

A Brief History: The U.S. Department of Labor
The organic act establishing the Department of Labor was signed on March 4, 1913, by a reluctant President William Howard Taft, the defeated and departing incumbent, just hours before Woodrow Wilson took office. A Federal Department of Labor was the direct product of a half-century campaign by organized labor for a "Voice in the Cabinet," and an indirect product of the Progressive Movement. In the words of the organic act, the Department's purpose is "to foster, promote and develop the welfare of working people, to improve their working conditions, and to enhance their opportunities for profitable ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics

For me it is more to do with man's unfinished desires and man's quest towards ataining perfection and harmony with respect to his environment.The challange for us mortals is that the concept of perfection is fluid on the path of self discovery.That is why rebirth is a soothing answer for many things that we try to understand with our limited senses. posted 1 month ago ★ Trade show booth traffic builder and lead generator ★ The WireMan ★ GREEN ★100% recycled wire see all my answers Best Answers in: Using LinkedIn (204), Business Development (12), Professional Networking (12), ...
