Message from President Liz Shuler
On Tuesday, August 31, 2021, AFL-CIO President Liz Shuler made this statement after the United States Conference of Mayors’ vote in support of the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act:
The nation’s mayors have called for passage of the PRO Act, and now it is time for the senators in Washington to listen. Today’s resolution sends a clear message to Congress—the PRO Act and the Public Service Freedom to Negotiate Act have widespread national support and must become the law of the land. Building back better starts with enacting the PRO Act’s commonsense workplace safety protections, expanding collective bargaining, ensuring gender and racial equality on the job, and enhancing penalties for employers who violate our rights. I applaud the mayors’ conference for its steadfast commitment to giving working families a chance to level the playing field in our economy. The next vote to pass the PRO Act should be in the U.S. Senate.
The labor movement stands in solidarity with the loved ones of the 13 U.S. service members who lost their lives defending freedom at the airport in Kabul, Afghanistan. We are grateful for our military, which is working to safely evacuate American citizens, allies, and refugees, including Afghan trade unionists who seek nothing more than to live in peace and freedom. We are proud of the union members who are helping with the evacuation, including the pilots and flight attendants who are transporting people to safety. And we are committed to supporting every U.S. veteran, including many union members, struggling with the events unfolding in Afghanistan.
Hurricane Ida
Our hearts also go out to all those who have been affected by Hurricane Ida. We will be assessing the damage in the coming days and finding ways for members across the country to help our union family and communities in need along the Gulf Coast.
President Shuler Says House Passage of Transformative Budget and Voting Rights Legislation Critical For Working Families
"By passing the $3.5 trillion budget resolution and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, the House has taken a critical step forward for working families. Passage of this resolution puts America one step closer to providing major new funding for good jobs and our care infrastructure—including the first ever federal paid family and medical leave benefit, affordable health care, education and enhanced enforcement of our labor laws.

President Biden’s Build Back Better agenda already has made an impact on the lives of so many across this country and today represents yet another victory for America’s working families. With discriminatory voting laws also proliferating across the country, passage of the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act could not come at a more critical time. Thanks to the tireless efforts of House leadership, our country is on its way to building back better and stronger and protecting our democracy; and we look forward to the final passage of these bills and the bipartisan infrastructure legislation as soon as possible," said AFL-CIO President Liz Shuler.
A summary of the budget resolution released after Democrats formally unveiled the measure outlines a plan to invest in four major categories: families, climate, health care, and infrastructure and jobs. According to the summary, the measure seeks to establish universal pre-K for 3- and 4-year-olds and make community college tuition-free for two years. Among other provisions, it calls for the establishment of a Civilian Climate Corps, adds new dental, vision and hearing benefits to Medicare coverage and would make a "historic level" of investment in affordable housing.
The budget resolution sets a target date of September 15 for committees to submit their reconciliation legislation.

Fred Redmond was elected the new secretary-treasurer of the AFL-CIO on Aug. 20. Redmond—who also serves as international vice president of the United Steelworkers (USW)—brings to the position his decades of expertise and dedication to the labor movement. Over the weekend, he spoke virtually to the “Good Trouble” rally in Washington, D.C., on the 58th anniversary of the March on Washington.

“We want a free democratic society dedicated to the political, economic and social advancement of man along moral lines,” Redmond said. “So here we are today, not only commemorating the march 58 years ago, but still demanding that America understand that we are in a state of emergency and the alarms are on full blast. We the people are prepared to continue to get into the kind of good trouble necessary to make America a place of its promise.” Click here to watch the full video.

What Do You Celebrate On Labor Day?
Labor Day is a strange and weird holiday for many American citizens on the calendar. Of the three Federal holidays that mark the summer season, with Memorial Day being considered the unofficial start of the season, Independence Day marking its middle, and Labor Day its end, it is this final Holiday of which most Americans probably have the least understanding of what it is they are observing.

Labor Day is a strictly American invention. It was made a Federal Holiday by a President and Congress who considered the International Workers Day, celebrated elsewhere in the world on May 1st to be too inflammatory a date on which to honor labor. A more cynical observer might see it as a deliberate attempt to sabotage international solidarity among the working class. Such a view might find support in the way in which organized labor and its history has been systematically repressed, dismissed, and co-opted in the years since Labor Day became a holiday in 1894. The result is that many, if not most Americans consider organized labor a quaint relic at best and a corrupt anachronism at worst.

Moreover, most Americans, even those enjoying education in the liberal arts tradition, have little knowledge of labor history and its substantial role in shaping the American way of life during the 20th century. While most Americans probably would be able to tell you what took place at the Battle of the Bulge or the Battle of Iwo Jima, those same Americans would be unlikely to know about, much less explain the significance of the Battle of the Over Pass or the Battle of Blair Mountain. Most Americans do not know that the term "Redneck" is a labor term, and means the political opposite of its common meaning today.

Most Americans do not know that the privileges they enjoy in the workplace as if a matter of right were paid for in blood by a large number of our ancestors.

It is perhaps this ignorance, officially enforced through the education system that leads to the perverse tendency among many Americans to associate with the ruling class, even though their own economic status is middle or working class. Particularly among the middle class, there is hostility to the values of organized labor, even though labor is the social force most responsible for building the American middle class, and the decline of one has tracked the decline of the other. As we have seen in the era of The Great Recession, when the personal incomes of the economic ruling class soar even as their companies fail and die, taking with them the economic fortunes of those outside the elite cadre of the upper most tax brackets, the ideological program of the labor movement become particularly important. 

In particular, I'm reminded of a labor ballad, one of many folk songs about the struggle to unionize, which I usually listen to around Labor Day as a sort of personal observance. The song, "Solidarity Forever", was written by Ralph Chaplin to the tune of Battle Hymn of the Republic. The lyrics are presented below. Any similarity to the present political situation is entirely un-accidental.
Solidarity forever,
Solidarity forever,
Solidarity forever,
for the union makes us strong.

When the union's inspiration through the workers' blood shall run,
there can be no power greater anywhere beneath the sun;
yet what force on earth is weaker than the feeble strength of one,
But the union makes us strong.

Is there aught we hold in common with the greedy parasite,
who would lash us into serfdom and would crush us with his might?
Is there anything left to us but to organize and fight?
For the union makes us strong.

It is we who plowed the prairies; built the cities where they trade;
Dug the mines and built the workshops, endless miles of railroad laid;
now we stand outcast and starving midst the wonders we have made;
but the union makes us strong.

All the world that's owned by idle drones is ours and ours alone.
We have laid the wide foundations; built it skyward stone by stone.
It is ours, not to slave in, but to master and to own.
While the union makes us strong.

They have taken untold millions that they never toiled to earn,
but without our brain and muscle not a single wheel can turn.
We can break their haughty power; gain our freedom when we learn
that the union makes us strong.

In our hands is placed a power greater than their hoarded gold,
Greater than the might of armies, magnified a thousand-fold.
We can bring to birth a new world from the ashes of the old
for the union makes us strong.

In Solidarity,
William E. Froehle,

Fair Districts Ohio Launches Map-Drawing Competition To Create A Better Democracy
Fair Districts Ohio announced the launch of the 2021 Ohio Mapping Competition and the members of the twelve-person Advisory Committee who will be responsible for choosing winners from among the submitted maps. This comes as the Ohio Redistricting Commission holds hearings and convenes to determine what the state legislative and and Congressional maps will look like beginning in 2022.
Ohioans from all corners of the state, every education level, and of any age are invited to submit legislative district maps by 5pm on September 15 for the chance to earn cash prizes. The maps must comply with competition rules and mapping criteria in the Ohio Constitution.
“We can achieve fair redistricting for every Ohioan when there is a transparent process that invites everyone to participate,” said Jen Miller, executive director of the League of Women Voters of Ohio. “The Fair Districts Mapping Competition is an important opportunity for all Ohioans to engage directly in mapmaking which will shape our voting power for the next ten years.”
The Advisory Committee for each map (Congressional and Ohio Statehouse) is composed of a mix of advocates, academics, members of the media, and issue area experts from across the political spectrum. None of the Advisory Committee members serve in elected office. Each member was carefully selected to achieve a nonpartisan review of all map submissions.
Winning map makers will earn $750 for first place, $500 for second place, and $250 for third place.
Common Cause Ohio: Demand a schedule for maps and hearings
September 1, the Ohio Redistricting Commission missed its first deadline for passing proposed Ohio House and Senate maps. Although the Ohio Senate Democratic Caucus shared state legislative maps for consideration, the Ohio Redistricting Commission itself has not proposed any maps -- and we have no information about when we can expect them to do so.

We also have no information about when the commission will hold future public hearings. They have not shared a timeline for mapmaking, nor have they set a schedule of any kind.
They haven’t even agreed amongst themselves how they will draw and introduce maps. Co-chair and Ohio House Speaker Bob Cupp simply said he hopes and assumes maps will be proposed before the next deadline, September 15. The conclusion we are forced to draw is that all the mapmaking action is taking place, right now, out of the public eye.

Everything about how this process is being conducted is entirely unacceptable.
  • Without an agreed upon process, how can the Commissioners draw fair, bipartisan maps?
  • Without officially proposed maps to look at, how can citizens weigh in?
  • Without a schedule, how can the public make needed preparations to attend hearings and make their voices heard?
  • Without transparency and public participation, how can any of the Commissioners claim they are proceeding in accordance with the letter or spirit of the 2015 redistricting reforms?

Why did the Commission fail to formally introduce maps by the deadline? The majority members blame the late arrival of census data -- but others managed to create maps that abide by Ohio’s new redistricting rules, even given the time crunch. We agree that the delayed data presents real challenges. Mapmaking shouldn’t be rushed and must include time for public deliberation, but that means that we need a clear timeline.

With the new redistricting rules in place, we have a right to expect mapmaking to be different in 2021 than it was in 2011. The Ohio Redistricting Commission should not be crafting and reviewing maps in secret -- as they were in “the bunker” in 2011. Sadly, withholding the maps and introducing them at the last minute may be a strategy to avoid public scrutiny and push back on proposed maps -- a strategy that is clearly against the letter and spirit of the 2015 reforms, and which violates Ohio’s Sunshine Laws.

The new rules established by the Commission only provide 24 hours notice for a hearing. This is simply inadequate. We need to know when official maps will be introduced, and we need a complete schedule of public hearings so citizen advocates can fully prepare to participate in a meaningful way.
We are calling on Common Cause members, redistricting reformers, and supporters and advocates of open government to immediately take action to demand that the Ohio Redistricting Commission co-chairs set a complete schedule for introducing maps and holding public hearings.

A minimum of three public hearings to consider proposed maps is required by the Ohio Constitution. Ohioans deserve to know when, where, and how many hearings to expect! Join us in calling on the Commission members to abide by the spirit and letter of the new redistricting rules and prioritize keeping the public informed and engaged in the process.
Thank you for all you do,
Catherine Turcer

IAFF Responds to Members' Needs in Wake of Hurricane Ida
Members of the Fire Fighters (IAFF) are setting up a command center in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and are assessing membership needs in the aftermath of Hurricane Ida, which made landfall Aug. 29 as a Category 4 storm. Early reports indicate that members of IAFF locals 1405 in Houma and 1925 in Morgan City, Louisiana, were hardest hit. However, the union said that limited cell phone service, electricity outages and roads blocked with debris have made it difficult to get a complete picture. “Our team is ready to mobilize and respond to our membership’s needs immediately after the storm,” IAFF General President Edward Kelly said on Sunday. “We are also prepared to pull additional resources from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and other agencies as needed.” You can donate to the IAFF’s Disaster Relief Fund by visiting
Union Veterans Council Provides Urgent Community Resources for Afghan Crisis
Veterans from all generations are processing the news of what is currently unfolding in Afghanistan and could be experiencing a wide range of emotions and feelings right now. From union presidents to first-year apprentices, many of these veterans are our brothers, sisters and siblings in the labor movement, and we want to support them during this time of concern.
With more than 1 million working union veterans and countless retirees, the Union Veterans Council wants to ensure that the labor community, and our veterans are educated, informed and prepared with the right resources and support to face this moment head-on.
Let’s be clear this will not affect all veterans, but our goal is to be prepared and make sure that any union veteran or family member gets the support they need, even if it is just a check-in.
We also have compiled a list of resources that are accessible to veterans, veterans’ supporters and the general public. Please share widely so that everyone who needs these resources has access to them.

$1 Million Investment in Black Empowerment Works
Dear United Way friends,

As we work toward the economic well-being of all people in our region, United Way of Greater Cincinnati will look at everything through the lens of equity, understanding disparities in our community and addressing them head on.

Last week, we announced a $1 million investment in 45 Black changemakers through our Black Empowerment Works program. We are fortunate to have committed, creative leaders working to make our communities stronger. We are proud to partner with them and honored to learn from them.

I have worked in the Greater Cincinnati social service sector for nearly 30 years and one of my main takeaways is that we need to really listen to those closest to the community challenges we are addressing. They often create the most innovative and effective solutions. Take a look for yourself -- you will see inspiring concepts such as Queen Mother’s Market’s plan to open a grocery store in Walnut Hills to provide local, fresh affordable groceries, and Our Tribe’s plan for a year-long program to assist Black children living with autism and their families. 

Thanks to the generous support of our community, we increased last year’s investment of $600,000 to this year’s $1 million. Thanks to our 2021 Black Empowerment Works community grant reviewers, who had the tough job of reviewing 168 applications and selecting 35 grantees (ten other grantees received funding outside of this process to continue existing work). We’ll be sharing more about that group in later communications. 

Look for more of this work in the future. Supporting Black changemakers is just one of the ways we are being intentional about working in, for and with our communities. I hope you are inspired to join us on this journey.
