 Latino Dairy and Dock Workers struggle for respect

Program: 
Labor Radio
Air date: 
Mon, 11/24/2014 - 6:00pm - 6:30pm
Short Description: 
Latino Dairy and Dock Workers struggle for respect
The United Farm Workers are organizing dairy workers associated with Darigold in Washington state.  Jamie Partridge interviews UFW organizer Indira Trejo and Luis, a dairy worker, about their struggles for safe, dignified and healthy working conditions.  In the second half of the show, John Walsh interviews Jhon Jairo Castro, president of the Buenaventura, Colombia chapter of the Unión Portuaria, the dockworkers’ union.  Buenaventura is Colombia’s biggest port and ground zero of the contradictions of free trade, where wealth both commercial and illicit flows through an impoverished and violence-stricken city with a predominantly Afro-Colombian population.  The dockworkers, whose labor rights ostensibly get priority attention under the US-Colombia “Labor Action Plan,” continue to lack direct employment relations, health and retirement benefits, and safe working conditions, while being subjected to degrading personal searches when they enter the workplace.  The communities suffer water and power outages, “invisible frontiers” between paramilitary successor groups, and forced displacement to clear the way for megaprojects.  All this might seem far away until you remember that ICTSI, the operator of Portland’s container terminal, is building a new terminal in Buenaventura, and that both cities are Pacific coast ports.

Lane Poncy and Michael Morrow will host

I'm happy to announce
June 30the launching of Black Drop,
the 4th book in the Sage Adair
Historical Mystery series.

It got a great review from the American Library Ass'n.
which is the librarians' do-purchase bible.
My favorite bit - "Sage Adair is a likeable and realistic anchor for this
well-written, smartly plotted historical mystery series...
the series is still accumulating a loyal fan base but each
novel brings it closer to the wide acclaim it deserves...."

The Portland Teachers Solidarity Campaign, with the Portland Parent Union and the Portland Student Union, held a press conference prior to the January 21st school board meeting, declaring that support for the Portland Association of Teachers demands for lower class sizes and wrap-around support services, less standardized testing, an end to racist school closures, and resources targeted to low-income schools, all would help create racial equity.  The crowd of a dozen parents, teachers and students called for the board to quit stalling and settle a fair, equitable contract with the teachers.  Recording (raw audio) by Jamie Partridge.

The Early Learning Alliance/AFT-Oregon
  

The Early Learning Alliance/AFT-Oregon is a unique, statewide coalition of child care center directors, owners, teachers and staff as well as parents and community leaders who have joined in a mission to improve the quality of early childhood edu­cation in Oregon. 

CLICK HERE to join ELA today.

ELA's mission

Our mission is to ensure that child care centers have resources to provide living wage jobs; and give families access to high quality, affordable child care. To achieve this goal, we must advance the interests of the key component in a quality education — the workforce that provides it.

A unified organizational voice

We envision a unified organizational voice for the early childhood workforce based in child care centers. As a voice for the child care workforce, we advocate for livable wages, benefits and professional devel­opment — but not at the expense of struggling parents or under-funded child care centers. ELA/AFT-Oregon seeks to shape landmark legislation that would bring greater resources to child care centers and workers throughout the state.

That’s why we are joining together — owners, directors, teachers and staff of child care centers in Oregon — to find funding and public support for early learning. Join our extraordinary organizing effort! Let’s work together to make sure child care centers, and the people who work in them, get the support they deserve.

CLICK HERE to join ELA today.
