United Support & Memorial for Workplace Fatalities (USMWF)

USMWF will be hosting the second non-timed USMWF's 5k Family Fun Run/Walk on Saturday, April 25, 2015. We will run or walk in memory and honor of the men and women that worked hard and ultimately gave their lives making this great nation what it is today and what it will be in the future. This fundraiser will allow us to reach out to families locally, statewide and nationally and offer them support and guidance during their grief process.

Judy Keen **more pictures added**

By now you have probably heard that Judy Keen has officially retired from the Union Hall. She is leaving after 10 years of dedicated service to us all. I will admit, I have some very big shoes to fill. Per Judy's request, we are having a small, private send off for her. In the meantime, here are a few pictures of Judy...

The Role that Values Play in Building Trust

                According to the mission statement of the American Federation of Labor, the association exists for the purpose of "improving the lives of working families, bringing fairness and dignity to the workplace and securing social equity in the nation." In other words, unions exist to raise levels of economic and social justice in our workplaces and communities.

Examining the Role of Government in Shaping an Economy that Works for All of Us

                The New Year has brought with it a changed political landscape in both Nebraska's Unicameral and in the U.S. Congress. On the bright side, 2015 ushers in improved minimum wage rates in 20 states. But 2015 has also brought more conservative voices to the making of public policy.

Labor Quote of the Day

"Today in America unions have a secure place in our industrial life. Only a handful of unreconstructed reactionaries harbor the ugly thought of breaking unions. Only a fool would try to deprive working men and women of the right to join the union of their choice.  I have no use for those — regardless of their political party — who hold some foolish dream of spinning the clock back to days when unorganized labor was a huddled, almost helpless mass."

 -- President Dwight D. Eisenhower  (September 17, 1952)
