The strike that wasn't, and one that was: from The Rick Smith Show and America's Workforce Radio, we have two reports on the issues that nearly forced tens of thousands of rail workers out on strike this week. Early Thursday morning, the Biden administration brokered a tentative agreement that, at least for now, has averted a nationwide rail strike. On Your Rights At Work, we hear from one of the 15,000 nurses in Minnesota who struck for three days this week over patient safety issues. And RadioLabour is back from its summer break with an interview with Guy Ryder, Director-General of the International Labour Organization. Our final show this week, Educating from the Heart, takes a look at how even art classes are not immune from the ongoing culture wars.

We'd run across one of those lists of “10 best labor films” that pops up from time to time and decided it was a good chance to talk about which films make the lists, which don't, and why. Today's episode is the first part of that conversation; next week we'll have the second part, when Tom Zaniello, who's written a number of books on labor films (including Working Stiffs, Union Maids, Reds, and Riffraff: An Expanded Guide to Films about Labor) joins us to provide his perspective.

On Monday, 15,000 Minnesota nurses walked out on strike, in the largest private-sector nurses' strike in U.S. history. The walkout came after nurses – members of the Minnesota Nurses Association -- had negotiated with hospital executives for more than five months and had worked without contracts for the last several months.

NOTE: We're pleased to feature ten of the Network's shows this week for our Labor Day special show; you can also catch it on WPFW 89.3 FM's 2022 Labor Day show at 4p ET (streaming online here) on Monday, September 5. Essential Workers of the Pandemic were inducted into the Labor Hall of Honor on Thursday; Secretary of Labor Marty Walsh talked with Your Rights At Work about honoring these workers, and about the 71% union approval rating – the highest in nearly 50 years – reported in a Gallup poll this week. From the BCTGM Voices Project, Bakery Workers Local 85 and the Corn Nuts Strike in California. And in another California strike, therapists walked out on Kaiser Permanente over a month ago; Building Bridges Radio talks to two of the strikers. In the first of two reports on Starbucks organizing, the Heartland Labor Forum reports on Starbucks shutting down the only store in Kansas City to vote in a union. Our second Starbucks report this week is from the El Cafecito del Día podcast, which brings us “No Contract, No Coffee!”, a conversation with Starbucks workers -- and union organizers -- Sam Amato and Christian Miranda. From the Solidarity Works podcast, “The Battle of Bay City”; bus drivers fight back privatization. And on Red Dead Redemption, Justine chats about the epidemic of 'Quiet Quitting'. The New York State cannabis industry is creating tens of thousands of union jobs; America's Workforce Radio finds out how. From the Power Line Podcast: the history of Milwaukee Tool and the things Milwaukee has done to put itself on top of the tooling industry. Our last segment comes to us from On The Job, and it's titled “Give us a break, Maccas”. That's what they call McDonalds in Australia, where the podcast originates: a quarter of a million current and former McDonalds workers in Australia are suing the fast-food giant for $250 million, over alleged denial of paid breaks.
