n 24 Hours FairPoint, Walmart and Steelworkers Show Collective Action Makes a Difference

WASHINGTON -

AFL-CIO Communications Director Eric Hauser issued the following statement in light of recent worker victories:

“What a difference a day makes. In the past 24 hours, Walmart workers got a raise, IBEW and CWA workers settled their strike with FairPoint, and United Steelworkers made safety at oil refinery plants a national issue. One 24 hour period shows how much progress can be made when workers come together to speak with one voice.
