Trump Administration Will Always Side With Corporations Over Labor
09/18/17 - Teamsters local 570
Sept. 18, 2017 | U.S. LABOR | It’s no secret that the Trump administration is corporation-friendly to a fault. For all the talk of the underserved coal miners and workers whose jobs have been stolen by free trade agreements or China, the Oval Office has not been a friendly – or even safe – place in the past eight months.

AMFA Local 18 Hurricane Benefit
09/18/17 - AMFA
September 18, 2017 -- Hurricane Harvey made landfall on August 26, 2017, ravaging southeastern Texas. Soon after, on September 10, 2017, Hurricane Irma tore through Florida. Thousands of Americans have been displaced from their homes due to the catastrophic damage caused by these two storms, including many of our brothers and sisters from AMFA Local 18. While airports in Houston and greater Florida have reported to be functioning at full speed, many of our AMFA brothers and sisters are still taking time off from work, tirelessly struggling to rebuild their homes damaged by the wind and flood waters. In an effort to help ease the burden of our members affected by this devastation, an AMFA 18 Hurricane Benefit GoFundMe page has been established. Please click the following link to support our fellow members. Every penny counts: https://www.gofundme.com/amfa-18-hurricane-benefit
