I am a 71 (almost 72) year old small business owner and not a union member. However, I understand the the unions have created so many of the things we have today - the 5 day work week, no child labor,... safe working conditions, vacations, the 40 hour work week and too many others to list. Unions were created because of the greed of corporations and are needed more today than ever! See More

Defenders and protectors of the Hanford work force.

All workers, not just bargaining unit, benefit from HAMTC and union leadership looking out for them. Their safety, worker's rights, benefits, em...ployment protection, and overall safety culture is a direct result of this organization of highly skilled and trained workers -- working in one of the world's most contaminated waste sites.

Monday the president’s budget recommended … slashing Hanford cleanup spending by 10 percent.

The maddening disconnect in politics goes on, as politicians who just two months ago slashed taxes are demanding more money for the increasingly unstable and dangerous Hanford nuclear-waste cleanup.

MARYSVILLE, Wash. -- About 100 Army Reserve soldiers from Marysville will soon say goodbye to their loves ones ahead of a deployment to Kuwait. Cake, drinks, and balloons. It looks like a party. But it's a bittersweet send-off ceremony for the 477th Transportation Company. "Last night it kind of rea...

Unions are nothing without their members. That's what gives them power. The American middle class is shrinking. Economic gains are going to the wealthy. Workers must come together and fight for themselves. No one else will.

Approximately 35 percent of American workers belonged to labor unions in the 1950s, but today that number is closer to 10 percent. This has many wondering if labor unions have become obsolete.

Harley-Davidson said the move will not impact its U.S. factories...... Wait. They are laying people off in the US.

"In one case, airborne contamination that appeared to be linked to demolition of the plant was found about 10 miles away near the K Reactors, which are along the Columbia River."

New test results show that monitoring for airborne radioactive contamination has been inadequate to protect Hanford nuclear reservation workers as the site’s PFP is demolished. 2 more bioassays are positive for inhaled contamination.

Hanford workers are expected to report to work as usual.

Tri-Cities area has a strong federal presence, with more than 13,000 employees paid by the federal government.

The recommendations have no immediate legal force but, like the president’s budget itself, reflect the administration’s priorities, making it an ideological blueprint.

Another reason to not shop at WalMart.

About 3,500 “co-managers” will be laid off. They will be replaced by new, “assistant manager” positions, which would have a lower salary. The laid off workers will be able to “apply” for these new jobs.

WALMART DECEPTION: “After Walmart’s flashy announcement of bonuses of up to $1,000 for some of its workers, the real story played out quietly. As news of the bo...nus announcement was lauded by Trump and Fox News, Walmart abruptly closed down 63 Sam’s Clubs stores. More than 9,000 people lost their jobs.”
