The IATSE Education Department is hosting the first virtual IATSE Road Show – Why Unions Matter: How Worker Power builds an economy that creates jobs, raises wages, and promotes a better quality of life for All.
Every day unions and their members are under attack. While corporate profits and executive salaries soar, American workers face disappearing pensions, increased hours and declining wages.
Many say unions have outlived their usefulness. Nothing could be further from the truth! Why Unions Still Matter, an informative and enlightening presentation, developed by the Labor Education Program at the University of Arkansas Little Rock, in conjunction with the IATSE makes the case that strong unions are an essential component of a strong and stable economy.
Presented by Diane Thomas-Holladay, Labor Education Program, Little Rock, AR & the IATSE Education & Training Dept.

“Lawmakers and the Trump administration reached an agreement on an estimated $2 trillion stimulus package aimed at shielding the U.S. economy from the worst consequences of the coronavirus pandemic,” Joshua Jamerson and Andrew Duehren report for The Wall Street Journal.
The relief package “will provide direct financial checks to many Americans, drastically expand unemployment insurance, offer hundreds [of] billions in loans to both small and large businesses, and provide health care providers with additional resources as the virus spreads.”
