In this video installment of Battleground Baltimore, TRNN Editor-in-Chief Maximillian Alvarez sits down with Laura Albans and Matt Papich, two workers at the renowned Baltimore Museum of Art who are involved in a crucial unionization effort that is currently taking place at the museum. From security guards and visitor services to art installers and curators, workers across departments are fighting to form a "wall-to-wall" union with the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, Council 67. After officially announcing their unionization effort in late September, BMA workers have joined a broader surge in labor organizing at cultural institutions around the country, including at the nearby Walters Museum in Baltimore. According to the union's mission statement, "We, the BMA staff, are part of the wave of change that is happening at cultural institutions around the country. By forming a union, we will champion better working conditions for all employees and create a positive cultural shift throughout the institution and the Baltimore community."In this interview, Alvarez talks with Albans and Papich about the work they do, how the unionization drive developed, and where things currently stand between workers and museum leadership. Laura Albans is a curatorial research associate who has worked at the BMA for nearly two decades; Matt Papich works in the exhibitions design and installation department and has been with the museum for 15 years.Read the transcript of this interview: https://therealnews.com/baltimore-museum-workers-are-fighting-for-a-wall-to-wall-unionHelp us continue producing radically independent news and in-depth analysis by following us and becoming a monthly sustainer: Donate: https://therealnews.com/donate-podSign up for our newsletter: https://therealnews.com/newsletter-podLike us on Facebook: https://facebook.com/therealnewsFollow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/therealnews

Methuselah lived to 969 years old, according to the Bible. In our recent age, Jeanne Calmet holds the title of the oldest person who ever lived. She lived to be 122 years and 164 days old. There's a woman in Japan, Kane Tanaka, who is currently 118. Jiroemon Kimuri, also from Japan, is the oldest man of all time, living to 116 years and 54 days. How did they do it? How do some people avoid the deterioration and weakness that plagues many of their peers decades early? Is it luck, or something else? Is it possible to grow older without getting sicker? Could a 90-year-old not look a day over 50? In Age Later, Dr. Nir Barzilai, a pioneer in aging research, looked both at the four age-related diseases that take most of us (diabetes, cancer, heart disease, and Alzheimer's) and at SuperAgers (people who have maintained active lives well into their 90s who've never experienced any of those diseases). What can we learn from these subjects, who have not only reached a ripe old age but have further ripened the older they get? Dr. Barzilai revealed the secrets of these SuperAgers and the scientific discoveries so that we can mimic some of their natural resistance to the aging process. This isn't to say we'll live to 969, but there's still plenty of life yet to live for all of us. Dr. Nir Barzilai is the founding Director of the Institute for Aging Research at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, and is Director of the Nathan Shock Center for Excellence in the Basic Biology of Aging and the Einstein Glenn Center for the Biology of Human Aging. He is also the Scientific Director of the American Federation for Aging Research (AFAR). Lee Hood, MD, PhD is a world-renowned scientist who co-founded Seattle's Institute for Systems Biology (ISB) in 2000 and served as its first President from 2000-2017.

Meet Patrick Nolan Patrick is the Executive Director of Friends of Organ Mountains-Desert Peak. Patrick brings thirteen years of organizing experience and six years with the American Federation of Teachers New Mexico (AFTNM). With AFTNM, Patrick worked with school employees across the state of New Mexico as they advocated for strong public schools. Patrick's work with the American Federation of State and County and Municipal employees took him to several western states, Alaska, Utah, Colorado, and Washington. Public lands play a pivotal role in all of these states and their economies, much as they do in New Mexico. The extensive time working in these states opened Patrick's eyes to the benefit of protecting and advocating for Public Lands. He worked with folks tasked with protecting and maintaining public lands on state, county, and city levels. The love they had for public lands helped Patrick learn the value of public lands. His experience building coalitions across the diverse state of New Mexico will serve him well as we advocate for Public Lands.

This has culminated in a weekly podcast on education, Readin', Writin', and Reason, which has allowed wonderful relationships to develop between Giordano, educators, and parents throughout the country who are speaking out against overbearing school boards. This week, Dom spends time speaking with those in the know, people who have experienced much of what we're seeing first-hand before, and have fought back in their own ways. This week, Dom is first joined by Denisha Merriweather, Director of Public Relations at the American Federation for Children and Founder of Black Minds Matter. Merriweather joins Readin', Writin', and Reason to discuss a piece she penned in support of school choice for the Washington Examiner. The issue, which has been used as a wedge issue in the realm of political debate on racial topics, is often talked down upon by Democrats and has been eluded to as outright racist. Merriweather explains the benefits that advancing such a political cause would bring to communities of color, and offers why she believes the push against school choice remains consistent. For more from Denisha Merriweather, head to BlackMindsMatter.net. Then, a listener favorite, Simon Campbell returns to Readin', Writin', and Reason for an update on the school board situation in Pennsbury, PA. Campbell, along with other citizens and the Institute for Free Speech, has filed suit against his local school board for overbearing tactics and First Amendment violations by board leaders and their solicitor. Campbell provides an update, and tells what his group hopes to accomplish in bringing the new lawsuit. For more on the lawsuit, head to IFS.org. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Rich Trumka and the 100th anniversary of Battle of Blair MountainIn Segment 1, Cecil Roberts, the United Mine Workers of America (UMWA) President, discusses the passing of Rich Trumka, former President of the AFL-CIO. An outspoken advocate for social and economic justice, Trumka was the nation's most straightforward voice on the critical need to ensure that all workers have a good job and the power to determine their wages and working conditions.Roberts also talks about the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Blair Mountain, the largest labor uprising in United States history and the largest armed uprising since the American Civil War. According to Roberts, this attack was the first time that an airstrike was called within the continental borders of the United States. The attack was called by the coal companies, which dropped bombs on the marchers.‘Give them a future': Should get first dibs on solar and wind energy jobs?In Segment 2, Cecil Roberts, UMWA president, said that as mining jobs decrease and solar and wind energy jobs rise, miners should be the first to get training for these jobs. He says miners are the ones who are being displaced due to these jobs. President Joe Biden said he wanted to make union jobs for those who are displaced.“We've been resisting that obviously because we think we should protect the jobs we have, but if we're going to have a policy that says coal miners lose their jobs, do what you said you were going to do, create union jobs for those who get displaced,” said Roberts.Roberts also says current union jobs pay between $75,000 and $100,00 per year with great benefits such as healthcare, pension plan, and time off. At this time, solar and wind energy jobs offer only half of those benefits and half the pay.“I'm hearing a lot of talk about creating these solar jobs, but I'm not hearing a talk or discussion about making them union jobs. I want to see how that works. If we're going to displace these coal miners, give them a future,” said Roberts. ‘We're sick of it': Delegate talks about the importance of wearing a mask and getting vaccinated against COVID-19In Segment 3, Delegate Mike Pushkin of Kanawha County is also the President of the American Federation of Musicians Local 136. He talks about the return of Live on the Levee over this summer and how COVID-19 is affecting future events such as sports events.Pushkin emphasizes the importance of wearing a mask and getting vaccinated so these events can continue.“I understand. It's gone on for so long. We're sick of it. We're sick of talking about it, hearing about it, but I'm sick of being sick. I'm sick of seeing the numbers go up. I'm sick of hearing about people I know being hospitalized. We've got to do a better job of explaining the only way we get through it is to get shots,” said Pushkin.As of Sunday, Sept. 5, West Virginia Governor Jim Justice had not issued another mask mandate statewide, but 26 out of 55 counties have mask mandates for schools K-12.“I think it's really going to take some tougher decisions from the top, from the governor's office. The virus doesn't recognize county boundaries. And I think it's going to take some strong leadership and the right direction right now,” said Pushkin. How unions saved West Virginia miners from industrial oppressionIn Segment 4, Myya Helm is a research associate for the West Virginia Center on Budget and Policy who helped write their annual report called “Labor, Race, and Solidarity.” Her study showed the division between Black, White and European miners — the immigrants who came in to fill the huge demand for the mining jobs. Helms says that many miners worked in poor conditions because the mine operators wanted to make as much profit as possible. And so in the early 20th century, all workers, black, white, European immigrants, were paid extremely low wages — safety conditions were practically nonexistent, and the conditions worsened when the United Mine Workers of America tried to organize in southern West Virginia…those tactics just further pushed miners to rally against their employers, consistent abuses of authority.” said Helms. According to the report, “Unions promised to abolish the system that held them all as workers in forced labor.” The miners actively challenged the social, economic, and political power held by coal companies. Soon, the state's miner's union grew as workers sought a better life for themselves and their families.

As the pandemic has pushed the country into a debate about when and how to reopen schools, Randi Weingarten has faced the ire of parents, teachers, school boards and — of course — Fox News. The president of the American Federation of Teachers leads a union of 1.7 million educators across the nation. She's been on the hook for pressing to keep school closed last fall and supporting mask mandates in classrooms this year. And most recently, she drew criticism from her own members when she personally endorsed a vaccine mandate and promised to work with states and school boards that are seeking to enact vaccine mandates or vaccinate-or-test requirements for teachers.In this conversation, Kara Swisher presses Weingarten on reopening procedures and the spectacle around mask mandates in states like Florida and Texas. They also discuss the wave of legislation prohibiting teachers from discussing critical race theory in classrooms, and why this former teacher has become a lightning rod for the right.You can find transcripts (posted midday) and more information for all episodes at nytimes.com/sway, and you can find Kara on Twitter @karaswisher.
