This Week With AFL-CIO President, Liz Shuler
The Biden–Harris administration and Labor Secretary Marty Walsh continue to deliver wins for working people. Today’s proposed amendments under the Davis–Bacon and Related Acts will modernize and strengthen prevailing wage laws to protect thousands of workers on federal construction projects from rampant wage theft.

Today also marks one year since President Biden signed the American Rescue Plan into law. This spending package provided working families critical support needed during an unprecedented economic and global health crisis.
The American Rescue Plan met the moment when help was needed more than ever before. That is what the Biden administration ran on and governs as: a team that sees the urgency of our present and looks to our future.

We are educating our members at the grassroots level. And we are going to keep up the pressure and capitalize on the momentum that began with the American Rescue Plan.
Fifty-seven years after “Bloody Sunday,” when Black demonstrators on the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama, risked their lives for voting rights, I was proud to join Vice President Kamala Harris and labor and civil rights activists on Sunday to continue the fight for a free and fair democracy.

We need to carry on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy of protecting the right to vote for ourselves and for future generations.

Workers have the strength to make change—not just in our workplaces, but in the halls of power. Together, we can expand and protect the democratic rights of all America’s people.
The @PayGapApp on Twitter is genius. It’s shedding a necessary light on pay disparity across corporations around the world. A company’s words are only as good as its actions, an important thing to take note of on this International Women’s Day.

We’re working hard to make sure quality, affordable child care remains a priority. We’ve heard it over and over again that many people, mainly women, have been sidelined during the pandemic because they’re primary caregivers. The child care system in our country is woefully insufficient and that has to be fixed.

There’s energy out there, and we need to harness it to grow the labor movement and re-imagine an economy that works for working people. Everyone included, no one left behind.
Tuesday’s final passage of the Postal Service Reform Act is a culmination of 15 years of efforts to fund and strengthen our U.S. Postal Service (USPS). The overwhelming bipartisan support is a recognition of how critical the USPS is to our everyday lives.

During this pandemic, we relied heavily on postal workers to deliver everything, from medication to election ballots to Social Security and pandemic relief checks, and as usual, the USPS did not disappoint.

This legislation ensures that the USPS is financially stable, ends the destructive mandate to pre-fund retiree health care benefits and guarantees six-day delivery reforms that are desperately needed to keep this beloved institution running with the same efficiency we have all come to depend on. As the bill moves forward to President Biden’s desk, we know that the future of postal workers and our USPS is bright.
With everything that’s happening in the world right now, it’s good to know we can rely on each other in this anxious and stressful time. As they say, solidarity has no borders.

That’s why we are pulling together our capacity as trade unions here in the U.S. And the AFL-CIO, along with the International Trade Union Confederation, is pulling together a unified response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Workers in America are seeing the events unfolding across the world, and we’re wondering how they will affect us. If we learned anything from the pandemic, it’s that those of us in the labor movement can always count on each other.
Together, We Win: Senate Sends Postal Service Reform Act to Biden’s Desk
On Tuesday, the U.S. Senate passed the Postal Service Reform Act by a broadly bipartisan vote of 79-19. Together, the labor movement ensured it happened. America’s postal service unions are celebrating this landmark win to strengthen our USPS.
“This is a monumental victory for letter carriers and all Americans who depend on the Postal Service for affordable and high-quality universal service,” National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) President Fredric Rolando said. “I want to congratulate and thank all the NALC members who lobbied their members of Congress to win passage in the Senate and the House. Thanks to your support, dedication and action, bipartisan postal reform, that was 12 years in the making, has finally passed in both chambers.”
“It is not an exaggeration to say that this bill is one of the most critical pieces of postal legislation in modern history—the struggle to win postal reform has been 15 years in the making,” said American Postal Workers Union (APWU) Legislative and Political Director Judy Beard. “Thanks to the efforts carried out by postal workers, our sister unions, allied organizations and the American public, comprehensive postal reform is now a reality.”
“The Postal Service Reform Act repeals the burdensome 2006 mandate for the USPS to pre-fund its retiree health care benefits and aligns retiree health care with the best practices in the private sector that lower premiums for NPMHU members and our fellow postal employees as well as safeguarding benefits. According to the Congressional Budget Office, the legislation will save the federal government over $1.5 billion over the next 10 years,” National Postal Mail Handlers Union (NPMHU) National President Paul Hogrogian said. “I look forward to President Biden signing this bill into law and providing the Postal Service with much-needed fiscal stability.”
“The first overhaul of the Postal Service in more than a decade, this crucial postal reform legislation provides the Postal Service with substantial financial relief to help it remain viable well into the 21st century. I would like to personally recognize Chairman Peters, Ranking Member Portman and Majority Leader Schumer for their bipartisan efforts to get postal reform all the way to the finish line,” said National Rural Letter Carriers’ Association (NRLCA) President Ronnie Stutts. “I also want to thank all of the senators who voted ‘yes’ to help put America’s Postal Service on firm financial footing.”

Winning this critical legislation has been a massive collective effort spanning more than a decade. Tens of thousands of people have rallied, signed petitions, written their members of Congress, made countless calls to Capitol Hill and worked in a broad coalition to get us to this point.

Your leadership has been absolutely critical in this long struggle. Together, we’ve organized our members and constituents from the postal shop floor, to activists of all stripes, to concerned postal customers into this critical fight. And together, we’ve prevailed.

Passing this bill strengthens the public Postal Service, our national treasure. It protects postal workers’ jobs and the family-sustaining pay and benefits that uplift their communities. And it gives us a new footing in the fight to defend the quality postal service we all deserve and our efforts to expand and enhance services in the years to come.

Congratulations to all of you and all our friends and allies and all who organized and mobilized over the years to help pass this critical legislation.

As ever, there will be more struggles to come. But for now, take heart in this long-fought victory!

In solidarity,
Steve DeMatteo
PSRA Passes, Appropriations Bill Excludes Postal Banking, Oshkosh Vehicles Contract
Postal Service Reform Act Passed!

Thank you to everyone who called your Senators, sent emails, and organized for fifteen years to pass the Postal Service Reform Act! The Senate voted to pass PSRA (S.1720/H.R. 3076) with a healthy margin [79-19]! This $107 billion overhaul bill eliminates the pre-funding mandate for retiree health benefits, integrates postal retirees into Medicare, and enables “non-postal services” like fishing licenses and subway passes in partnership with state and local governments. Celebrate with us by posting on your socials about this victory! Our work is in no way done, but this is a major first step in financially stabilizing USPS for the future. Check out our statement on this milestone.

$1.5 trillion omnibus spending bill passed without Postal Banking Pilot Language

The House and Senate moved quickly this week to pass the $1.5 trillion omnibus containing all 12 fiscal 2022 spending bills. The bill unfortunately did not include the $6 million towards the non-bank financial services pilot, or the language directing USPS to expand its pilot. We suspect that the non-bank financial services language in the Appropriations omnibus may have been a bargaining chip in the negotiations to drop amendments to the Postal Service Reform Act, as they were being negotiated by leadership at the same time. We are disappointed, but thanks to the coalition’s efforts to drive in a quarter of a million emails to Congress, we saw strong support for and familiarity with the language in the Appropriations committees and subcommittees (Chair DeLauro, Rep Quigley, Senator Van Hollen), not just our perennial champions (Reps. Kaptur, Pascrell, and Ocasio-Cortez, and Senators Gillibrand and Sanders). The language was more robust this year, and we got further in the process than we have in past budgets.  We will continue to fight for postal banking legislation, through next year’s budget, through stand-alone bills, and through executive action.

Oshkosh Contract

We hope you all received our follow up resources following last week’s All-hands call on DeJoy's Oshkosh Contract! VICE came out with a thorough article this week recounting the history of the fight for an electrified fleet and describing how the conflict around the deal reflects current leadership struggles at the agency. A reminder that United Automobile Workers of America (UAW) is organizing daily around making these trucks electric powered and built by union labor in Wisconsin. Support UAW by signing and sharing their petition, and stay tuned for more on the electric vehicles campaign

Take Action to Help Ukraine
Where to Donate:
International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC) Ukraine Fund - People in Ukraine are in grave danger of physical harm, families have fled their homes seeking refuge in neighboring countries, and others are sheltering from bombs falling in major cities. The ITUC’s Ukrainian member organizations FPU and KVPU are providing support to families who desperately need assistance with: food and water provisions, medical supplies, hygiene items. You can help Ukraine’s workers and their families by donating to the ITUC’s emergency fundraising appeal. All funds donated will be passed on to our two member organizations to support their humanitarian work in Ukraine.

People in Need Ukraine - People in Need Ukraine provides a wide variety of emergency services, recently they sent the first convoy of trucks loaded with humanitarian aid as requested by reps of Lviv in western Ukraine that included sleeping bags, mats, and other goods either for free or at a great discount. They also provided aid to internally displaced people, such as aid, shelter, insulated tents for displaced children, and basic needs, e.g. food, water, hygiene products. They also receive donations from USAID, WFP, EU and other legit donors.  
Ukrainian Red Cross Society - They are part of the Red Cross and help civilians with emergency assistance. The link also provides information on donations and usage of donations. (Please note that the English website takes a bit longer to load).

Caritas Ukraine - Began their work in 1992 after Ukraine declared independence providing humanitarian assistance. Currently providing support to internally-displaced people on the move with essential items, such as food, drinking water and personal hygiene kits and shelter, safe transport for displaced families. Click on link to learn more and make the donation. 

Razom for Ukraine - New York City-based organization that organizes the provision of humanitarian aid and conducts informational work in the US. They are a volunteer-run organization with a low overhead similar to United Help Ukraine, but in my view more able to handle larger sums of money. They have been active since Maidan and have raised $1.05 million in the last two weeks.

Labor Joins Commemorative March from Selma to Montgomery
Earlier today, the AFL-CIO and United Domestic Workers (UDW)/AFSCME Local 3930 led the fifth day of the 57th commemoration of the march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, joining national organizations and leaders in amplifying the call for federal voting rights protections. In the wake of widespread attacks on voting rights and organizing rights, particularly in communities of color, hundreds of trade unionists from across the country will come together to demonstrate the labor movement’s commitment in the fight for democracy at the ballot box and to reinforce its longstanding bond with the struggle for civil rights.
The Rev. Jesse Jackson of the Rainbow PUSH Coalition took part in today's march, passing the torch to members of the labor movement on U.S. Highway 80 outside of Montgomery. AFL-CIO Secretary-Treasurer Fred Redmond will help lead a rally for justice and democracy at the state capitol in Montgomery on Friday. Vice President Kamala Harris, AFL-CIO President Liz Shuler and AFSCME President Lee Saunders were in Selma last weekend to mark the 57th anniversary of “Bloody Sunday.” And Mine Workers (UMWA) President Cecil Roberts and Alabama AFL-CIO President Bren Riley (USW) joined today’s march.

Biden-Harris Administration Announces $144 Million to Create
Good-Paying Union Jobs, Revitalize Coal Communities
During a visit to Ohio last week, Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland and White House Senior Advisor and Infrastructure Implementation Coordinator Mitch Landrieu met with union leaders to discuss the bipartisan infrastructure bill, and in particular the programs to cap orphaned gas and oil wells and abandoned mine land reclamation. Ohio’s federal dollar allocation for these programs is in the top tier nationally. The federal share for Ohio for capping of orphaned oil and gas well alone is projected to be $500 million over the next 10 to 15 years.  Not only is this work needed to improve our state and local communities the prevailing wage jobs that will be created is a massive win for working people throughout the state and significantly in legacy coal counties.
"These dollars are critical to sealing these abandoned mines and capping orphaned oil and gas wells while also holding true to President Biden's commitment to using unionized labor in every aspect of the infrastructure bill," said Ohio AFL-CIO President Tim Burga, who joined Haaland, Landrieu as well as Senator Sherrod Brown, Congresswoman Shontel Brown and labor leaders for a roundtable in Cleveland last Friday. "This administration is holding true on their promise of ensuring working people and labor are front and center in rebuilding America."
The visit to Ohio is part of the Secretary’s multi-state, multi-month tour of Appalachia to highlight how these critical infrastructure investments will help ensure our communities have healthy lands and waters in their neighborhoods.
The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law extended the Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement’s (OSMRE) AML fee collection authority through September 30, 2034, and reduced reclamation fee rates by 20 percent, ensuring a funding source for AML grants through 2035. These grants help local communities revitalize local economies by supporting good-paying union jobs and addressing dangerous environmental conditions and pollution from legacy coal developments.
Ohio Received nearly $1.2 billion for 230 Colleges and Universities Due to the American Rescue Plan
The Department of Education announced that colleges and universities in Ohio have received nearly $1.2 billion in American Rescue Plan funds – one of the largest one-time infusions of funding ever provided to the state’s colleges and universities.
These funds were provided through the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) over the past year. The American Rescue Plan requires half of these funds to be used to provide direct financial relief to students; the Department of Education expects far more will ultimately be used for that purpose. In addition to $1.1 billion provided under previous coronavirus relief legislation, these funds are already being used by colleges and universities in Ohio to serve students and ensure learning continues during the COVID-19 pandemic.
As part of a state-by-state breakdown of funding, the Administration reported that these American Rescue Plan funds included significant investments in key institutions in Ohio, including:
  • Ohio State University (The): $115,371,387
  • University of Cincinnati: $69,995,422
  • Kent State University: $63,870,126
  • Ohio University: $52,817,422
  • University of Akron (The): $40,053,453
  • Approximately $305 million for community colleges
  • Over $34 million for 2 Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs)
President Biden to Increase Threshold For Buy American Provision
As reported in Politico: The Biden administration will unveil its final changes to the federal government’s Buy American program today, hoping that stricter rules around how taxpayer dollars are spent will inspire companies to situate their supply chains in the United States.
The Federal Acquisition Regulatory Council, which oversees government procurement policy, will release its final definition of what it means for products to be made in the U.S. By 2029, products will qualify for the program if 75 percent of their value comes from parts manufactured domestically. Today, that figure is 55 percent.
“The phased increase will allow both small and large contractors time to transition their supply chains to domestic suppliers and to increase their use of American-made components,” a senior administration official told reporters.
Additionally, the Biden administration will allow federal agencies to pay more to purchase critical goods from American suppliers, even if cheaper alternatives are available from foreign companies.
The exact product list is still to be determined, but it’s expected to include products deemed vital to national security, senior officials said. The administration is betting that companies will make those goods in the U.S. if they know the federal government will be a reliable buyer.
Biden signed an executive order last January , just days after taking office, requiring the new rules. It was part of his campaign-trail promise to tighten Buy American policies, a commitment that presidents before him have also made.

IAFF Sends Message of Solidarity to Firefighters in Ukraine
As their country remains under Russian attack, Ukrainian firefighters are staying strong on the front lines—not in battle, but protecting the lives of their fellow citizens. As the Ukrainian military is doing its job, firefighters there are responding to structure fires caused by missile strikes and searching for survivors in blown-out buildings.
It is difficult to imagine the challenges fire fighters there are facing as they continue to respond during a military invasion,” said IAFF General President Edward Kelly (not pictured). “This union is proud to stand with them as they continue to serve their communities without hesitation. We pray they stay safe.” The union said it will continue to monitor the situation and pursue ways of helping firefighters in Ukraine.
UWUA Urges Preparedness for Cybersecurity Threats to Utilities
With the tragic news of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, security professionals in the United States have been urging Americans to do what we can to protect ourselves from the risk of cyberattacks. Members of the Utility Workers (UWUA) have been helping to lead the way to protect our utilities’ cybersecurity but said we still have far to go.
The union shared a message with its members: “We urge all UWUA members that if you are witnessing any security practices that concern you at your workplace but are worried about being retaliated against for speaking up, reach out to your UWUA rep immediately. You have a right to be able to raise your concerns without consequences.”

AAUP Set to Join Forces with AFT and Form Largest Higher Ed Workers Alliance
At a time of momentous challenges to higher education, the governing councils of the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) and the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) unanimously voted on Sunday to pursue affiliating their unions. “The AFT and AAUP are coming together to unleash the purpose, promise and possibilities of higher education in America,” AFT President Randi Weingarten said.
The AAUP and the AFT are fighting for a shared platform to remake higher education in America: A New Deal for Higher Education. If approved by the AAUP’s delegate assembly in June, the agreement will bring together two organizations representing more than 300,000 faculty overall, the largest such alliance in the country. The partnership will serve as the basis for enhanced faculty voice with nationwide reach and huge potential for future organizing growth and success.
TV and Film Post Production Workers Petition NLRB for Union Election
More than 150 post production workers, members of the Post Production Guild-New York (PPG-NY), have filed a petition with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) to vote on joining Communications Workers of America (CWA) Local 1101. They are fighting for a standardized wage scale, guaranteed health insurance, overtime pay and, most of all, collective bargaining power. These freelance film and TV producers are seeking to hold a union election after the industry’s collective bargaining representative, the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers, refused to voluntarily recognize the unit.
My colleagues and I are passionate about what we do,” said producer Irene Burns, “but we are fed up with the lack of union benefits and protections that our counterparts in other departments enjoy.” Use this toolkit to show your organization’s support for New York’s post production workers.
U.S Senator Sherrod Brown: Working For Working People!
Senators Sherrod Brown and Bob Casey Introduce Bill to Protect Our Healthcare If We Have to Strike

U.S. Sens. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) and Bob Casey (D-PA) introduced the Striking Workers Healthcare Protection Act which would require employers to continue providing health insurance to workers exercising their right to strike, so working families aren’t forced off the health coverage they’ve earned and negotiated, and aren’t forced to pay out-of-pocket for potentially lifesaving health care.
“Too many times in Ohio and around the country, we’ve seen corporations kick their workers off their health coverage in an attempt to break a strike. Employers shouldn’t be able to cut off health insurance for workers and their families or threaten to as a way to silence workers,” said Sen. Brown. “Threatening the wellbeing of employees, their families and their communities because they’re exercising their right to strike for fair pay, good working conditions, and a voice in their workplace is unacceptable and shouldn’t be a tool employers can use to break a strike and force workers back into subpar conditions.”
The bill would create a separate unfair labor practice category, punishable by fines, for when employers cut or alter workers’ health insurance while the workers are on strike. The fines would vary based on their history of violations, size, the scope of the harm, and the public interest.
“When workers strike, they do so because they’re fighting for a level playing field for themselves, their coworkers and their families,” said Sen. Casey. “Employers should be coming to the table and negotiating with workers, not forcing them to choose between health care and their voice in the workplace. I’m proud to join my friend Senator Brown to introduce legislation to ensure employers can’t kick workers off their health care while they’re exercising their fundamental right to organize.”
