    Default The 10 Biggest Wins for Labor in 2013

    I am not impressed. Until I see a day when our few union freight companies are not asking Teamsters to take concessions, I will not be convinced. The teamsters union was mighty and all about freight and now you guys are quickly disappearing. I see no wins here.

    What marks a good year for labor? Certainly 2012 didn't end well, with union-dense Michigan becoming the latest “right-to-work” state in a blow to workers’ collective bargaining rights. By that measure, 2013 came out ahead: This year, no state legislature passed such a law. (And while Kentucky Republican Sens. Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul did try to tack a federal right-to-work amendment onto the Employee Non-Discrimination Act, the bill went forward without it.)

    But besides having dodged more right-to-work bullets, did labor have a good year in 2013? Yes, says veteran labor reporter Stephen Franklin, formerly of the Chicago Tribune, in an email to Working In These Times:

    Put the barrels out in all barns, the nons included. Fight for your life is now. Baseball bats and all the time and fight is nearing. Americans will not eat shit anymore. We are the best!
