DECEMBER 2014 UNION MEETINGS!

Union Meetings will be held on Tuesday, December 2nd and Wednesday December 3rd at 7:30 PM at Gladden Hall.  

What's New at IAFF 42
What Have American Unions Ever Done For Me?

Many American Workers have absolutely no idea what Organized Labor has done for since the 1930's or they have just forgotten.  In the past year we have seen at least 10 Republican Governors who have moved to strip Collective Bargaining Rights from its Public Employees (Teachers, Police, Fire and EMS).  The next time one of your friends ask you the question "What have American Unions done for us?", show them this short video clip.  This might help them answser their own question.

What Home Depot Dosen't Want You to Know

You as a Union Member have choices to make of where you spend your hard earned dollars.  These choices include purchasing American Made products vs. imported products, as well as retailers how sell these goods.  As a labor union we always encourage our members to support those organizations that support working class folks and recommend that you boycott those organizations that have done what they can to destroy labor unions or basic rights of workers. 

During the past two years when Organized Labor advanced legislation to Congress to approve the Employee Free Choice Act, several large corporations poured hundreds of thousands of dollars into lobbying this legislation.  Three of those that come to mind and were the largest contributors to defeating this cause were Walmart, Starbucks Coffee and Home Depot.  

We would show you this video that Home Depot mandated ALL employees to watch in 2010, but Home Depot has asserted that the video violated terms of use and it has been removed from the INTERNET.   The truth is Home Depot doesn't want anyone that is employed within their stores talking to anyone about joining a UNION. 

So now ask yourself do you really want to spend your hard earned union salary at an organization who wants nothing to do with Unions and intimidates its employees into believing they are better off without being organized. 

IAFF Launches New Website - GetItUnion.com

As a result of the actions taken by the Delegates at the 50th IAFF Convention in August of this year, the IAFF has built a new innovative website to provide American and Canadian made goods that are Union Made. 

The concept behind this was to provide a one-stop shop website where Union Members could support American and Canadian Union Manufacturers with our hard earned Union wages and support our brothers and sisters in the labor movement. It was also to provide an alternative to spending our dollars at organizations such as Walmart who sells items predominately manufactured in China, Indonesia and other third world countries.
 
This new website GetItUnion.com was built by the International Association of Fire Fighters in response to the delegates from across the United States and Canada. Now members may shop for items ranging from Automobiles, Tires, Clothing, Shoes, Boots, Banking Credit Cards/Checks as well as links to our own IAFF Online Store to purchase goods.
