There are new contracts all over the place on this week's episode of Work Stoppage.  We start with Kaiser Permanente, where a tentative agreement has been reached to prevent the planned implementation of a two tiered contract.  Then we discuss the end of the month long John Deere strike, after workers ratified a new deal which contains hard fought gains but maintains their two tiered system.  Also this week, IATSE has ratified a new contract against the wishes of a majority of union members due to the use of an undemocratic delegate system.  HelloFresh workers have faced sub-poverty wages, racist abuse from management, dangerous working conditions, and now a vicious union busting campaign as they fight for their right to collectively bargain.  Finally, Burgerville workers have fought hard for three years, making admirable gains for workers across the company, and now finally have a historic tentative contract agreement to become the first recognized fast food union in the country.

It's a liberal bashing Friday! Bob and Scott talk about the state of the Democrats in the wake of the Virginia, New Jersey and Buffalo elections. They talk about how the Democrats continue to act like it's 1993 and put up tired old Clinton hacks like Terry McAuliffe and ex-Goldman bankers like Phil Murphy and expect things to be different. Furthermore, they undermine democratic socialists like India Walton in the Buffalo mayor's race and blame woke politics, defund the police, medicare for all, the Green New Deal, etc when things don't go their way. In Glasgow, it's even more of the same liberal slight of hand, as Obama and Kerry play up the "climate action" rhetoric when both have built long careers on keeping the fossil fuel sector afloat. Obama was in the White House for eight years with climate movements sitting in on his front doorstep, fighting pipelines in Texas, fracking in New York and coal mining in Appalachia and did NOTHING. Scott has more than a few gripes about this. We then get into how autonomous movements, using direct action and organizing, defy powers that be in the corporate suites, Washington DC and, the "leadership" of their own movements. We discuss the John Deere strike and a recent disruption of Sen. Amy Klobuchar by Stop Line 3 protestors as examples of disruption and resistance to the powers that be. Finally, we wrap with a "Love'em they're liberals" segment about Nancy Pelosi officiating billionaire's weddings in San Francisco City Hall (true story). Love them they're liberals!

More than 30,000 Kaiser Permanente workers along the West Coast are expected to walk off the job on November 15, citing staffing and safety concerns. John Deere and Kellogg's employees have been striking for weeks.  “There's kind of this sense among workers across the United States that … they're owed big time because they worked so heroically during the pandemic. … They're also encouraged that, ‘Hey, we have President Joe Biden, who is clearly the most pro-worker, pro-union president since Franklin Roosevelt in the 1930s,'” says Steven Greenhouse, author of “Beaten Down, Worked Up: The Past, Present, and Future of American Labor.”  For those who are still working — and back at the office — Press Play gets  tips on navigating potentially awkward moments with coworkers you haven't seen in a long time.  Tourists are now allowed to come into the U.S. if they show proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative test taken within three days of their travel date.

America's economic and political inequality has led workaday Americans to exclaim: “The system is broken. Let's fix it!” But there's another version of this protest that I'm hearing more frequently these days: “The system is fixed. Let's break it!” That certainly applies to such rigged systems as money in politics and voter suppression, but it's also relevant to seemingly mundane matters that restrain our personal freedoms. One of the insidious “fixes” we need to break is the claim by brand-name corporations that we consumers must be banned by law from repairing the products they sell to us! The weak battery in your cell phone, the fuel sensor in a farmer's tractor, some gizmo in the toaster you bought, a fuse in your business' delivery truck – you could fix all of these yourself or, with little hassle, take the problem to a local repair shop. But, no, such manufacturing powerhouses as Apple, John Deere, and Panasonic assert that only their corporate technicians are authorized to open the product – which you own! – to make it work again. So, you are expected to deliver it to their distant facility, wait however-many days or weeks they tell you, and pay an inflated price. They've literally fixed the “fix” for consumer products. They impose their control by making the products as needlessly complicated as possible, then claiming that the complexity is their patented proprietary product. Thus, they say they don't have to provide repair manuals or sell repair tools to consumers or independent shops. Gotcha. To give their closed profiteering system the force of law, the giants have deployed armies of lobbyists and lawyers to legislatures and courts, arguing that self-repair people really are scoundrels trying to circumvent safety and environmental rules.

The cybersecurity basics should be just that—basic. Easy to do, agreed-upon, and adopted at a near 100 percent rate by companies and organizations everywhere, right? You'd hope. But the reality is that basic cybersecurity blunders have led to easy-to-discover vulnerabilities in companies including John Deere, Clubhouse, and Kaseya VSA (which we've all talked about on this show), and at least for Kaseya VSA, those vulnerabilities led to one of the worst ransomware attacks in recent history.

Sam Seder welcomes the new host of Ring of Fire! Thousands of workers have gone on strike in the month of October, including roughly 10,000 John Deere workers across the country. This mass movement by workers demanding better treatment has been dubbed "Striketober" by the media, and it is a clear sign that workers have had enough of being exploited by corporations. Jordan Chariton from Status Coup news has been traveling the country to meet with these workers, and he will join us to discuss the ongoing strikes and explains what the workers are hoping to gain.

With strikes in a wide variety of private sectors popping up all across the country — Kelloggs, Kaiser Permanente, coal miners in Alabama, John Deere, The International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE), Taxi Drivers on hunger strike in NY, and more — the United States might be on the verge of a strike wave, and we've brought on the perfect guest to explain exactly what's going on. Alex Press is a staff writer at Jacobin Magazine, host of the Primer podcast, and author most recently of the Jacobin articles, “US Workers Are in a Militant Mood” and “Halyna Hutchins's Death on the Set of Rust Was “Not a Freak Accident.” The Conversation will bring you up to date on all of the labor activity currently underway, but will also zoom out to explore the state of the labor movement more broadly, taking a deep dive on how the pandemic has transformed the movement, unpacking what's really behind the so-called “labor shortage,” and getting to the root of why workers are starting to stand up to bosses in a way that we haven't seen for quite some time.

Revolutions Per Minute - Radio from the New York City Democratic Socialists of America

You're listening to Revolutions Per Minute live from the new WBAI studios, a socialist radio show and podcast from members of New York City Democratic Socialists of America. The Democratic Socialists of America is the largest socialist organization in the United States, with 95,000 members nationwide and NYC-DSA is its biggest chapter. We are run by our 9,000+ members and organizers who are working together to build democratic socialism in all five boroughs. A UAW worker on strike at a John Deere facility in Iowa was killed on the picket lines early this morning. We send our love and solidarity to his loved ones and his ten thousand union brothers and sisters still out there fighting for a dignified life. His sacrifice will not be forgotten. Unionization efforts and the strike wave continue to spread. Amazon workers in Staten Island announced an NLRB petition earlier this week. Thousands of academic workers unionized at the University of Pittsburgh while thousands more at Harvard today launched a three day work stoppage. Columbia academic workers walked out today are prepared to hit the picket lines next week here in New York. 45,000 healthcare workers at Kaiser Permanente have authorized a strike. NYC-DSA members this past weekend stood in solidarity with 2,000 healthcare workers on strike at Catholic Mercy Hospital in Buffalo. We'll hear from Charlie Baker on this struggle and the rally for DSA endorsed Mayoral candidate India Walton. Dozens of DSA candidates are running in races across the country from Massachusetts to New York to Florida. Jorge from Joel Brooks campaign in Jersey City joins to discuss their city council campaign in its final week. We'll also hear a special report from Lee on the victorious struggle led by NYC-DSA Ecosocialist Working Group to prevent a fracked gas power plant from being built in Astoria.

A lot of important history is being made right now, and something potentially game-changing is unfolding among the American workforce. At this very moment, 10,000 UAW members at John Deere are on strike in Iowa, Illinois, and Kansas; 35,000 healthcare workers at Kaiser Permanente have authorized a strike; 1,400 workers at cereal giant Kellogg's are on strike in Nebraska, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee; 1,100 coal miners in Alabama have been on strike since April; 800 nurses in Massachusetts have been on strike since March; and numerous other strikes and strike authorizations are also unfolding. On top of that, record numbers of US workers are voluntarily quitting their jobs, in what is being called the “Great Resignation.”At the same time, there are crucial struggles happening that may not seem as dramatic as collective strikes but are no less important for the future of the labor movement. One of these struggles is taking place within the United Auto Workers itself, where members are currently voting on an unprecedented referendum that will decide whether or not the 400,000 working members and nearly 600,000 retirees can directly elect their top union officers. Ballots went out on Oct. 19 and are due back at the end of November. If the referendum passes, it could be the beginning of a massive shakeup for the union, which many members say needs more democratic governance and more militant energy coming from the rank-and-file. Unite All Workers for Democracy (UAWD), a grassroots caucus of UAW members advocating for direct elections, has been leading the charge for this historic referendum. In this episode of Working People, we talk with Justin Mayhugh, who has worked at General Motors in Kansas City for over a decade and is an organizer with the UAWD caucus.Justin Mayhugh Twitter page: https://twitter.com/justinmayhughUnite All Workers for Democracy (UAWD) Facebook page, Twitter page, and Instagram:https://www.facebook.com/UniteAllWorkersForDemocracyhttps://twitter.com/UAWD_Reformhttps://www.instagram.com/uawd_reform/Jonah Furman, The Real News Network, "A Once-in-a-Generation Chance to Revive the UAW Is Coming": https://therealnews.com/a-once-in-a-generation-chance-to-revive-the-uaw-is-comingFeatured Music (all songs sourced from the Free Music Archive: freemusicarchive.org)Jules Taylor, "Working People Theme Song"Help 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

It's Casual Friday with a very special guest! Sam and Emma host Congresswoman Ilhan Omar of Minnesota's 5th District, whose recent book, This Is What America Looks Like: My Journey from Refugee to Congresswoman, is out in paperback now! Representative Omar, Sam, and Emma take on a variety of issues central to the progressive cause as the Biden administration has begun to falter. They begin with key issues on immigration and refugees, as Ilhan Omar touches on the shameful continuation of Trump policies under Biden, particularly exploring the treatments of Afghan and Haitian refugees and the Biden administration's reliance on Title 42, taking on also why he has failed to stick to this campaign promise. Next, they move to the topic of student debt relief, as Congresswoman Omar dives into the mysterious missing memo that stands as the only thing preventing Biden from putting pen to paper with an executive order, and what could be behind the delay, before they jump to the topic of the reconciliation platform and how debt relief may or may not fit in. She, Emma, and Sam also dive into the discussion around reconciliation spending, why a shorter span on funding is easily okay by progressives if Sinema and Manchin will just clarify what they would like, and explore the developing role of the progressive caucus. They also touch on the legitimate ideas on both sides of the Holocaust, as per Texas's new education requirements that an "opposing" view be taught regarding the once in a century atrocity. And in the second half, Sam and Emma are joined by members of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE) union David McMahon (Local 52) and Fae Weichsel (Local 600) to discuss the recent developments regarding their strike authorization. Then Sam and Emma are joined by comedian Ben Gleib to discuss his recent dust up with Charlie Kirk! They run through the highlights of his very calm discussion with Charlie Kirk, including Kirk's anger and confusion regarding human anatomy, American citizenship, and what his role is within the right. Sam and Emma also touch on talking horses and John Deere, taking on the solidarity we're seeing all across the nation with this string of labor strikes, and Lindsey Graham doing some Republican-talking-point MadLibs on the wealthy Brazilian terrorists coming into our country, plus your IMs!

Historically, barbecue has been a cheap and delicious way to cook meat — principally by Black pitmasters who lived in poverty. Now, ‘cue joints win prestigious awards and can charge top dollar. But a lot of media attention has centered on white cooks, who make up a fraction of pitmasters. Marketplace’s Andy Uhler visited a few Texas barbecue restaurants to look at what some are calling the gentrification of barbecue. We’ll also tackle last week’s jobless claims, hear how the John Deere strike is affecting rural America and examine how climate change is likely to reshape migration.
