What’s good, loyal #1uu listeners? It’s been a long time….we shouldn’t have left you without a dope podcast to step to. But alas, here we are 15 months after Episode Three back with #AnothaOne. Welcome to SR Episode Four (A New Hope). This episode of the podcast was recorded at the House of Jeezy Studios on Friday, November 22nd.  And in this fourth installment (and Season One finale), we open up labor notes by talking about the Southern Poverty Law Center denying its employees’ request for voluntary recognition. Then, we discuss the incredible wave of new unit organizing at The NewsGuild – CWA, the first T-Mobile store in the United States to unionize, John Legere’s anticlimactic departure from T-Mobile, and the T-Mobile / Sprint merger. We also check in on the aftereffects of the Janus vs. AFSCME decision and discuss the confirmation of Eugene Scalia as United States Secretary of Labor. After labor notes, we talk about the hot button issues of the moment: the impeachment hearings as well as the 2020 election and democratic primary debates. Listening to us locally in Colorado? No problem. We’ve got you covered with an update from the 2019 local elections in Aurora. And since it’s bee 15 months since our last episode, of course we need to check in with updates from Jason Michael and Ted James. Finally, we close Episode Four with another hilarious installment of “Would you rather?” Episode Four (A New Hope) is just that. It’s a fun, optimistic and at times light-hearted reunion between two good friends. Jason Michael and Ted James had a blast making it and we hope you have a blast listening. Pod save labor!

And as always, Solidarity Radio Forever ✊ #1uu #AnothaOne

Solidarity Radio – Episode Three

Written on:July 1, 2018

Greetings, loyal #1uu listeners. I wish we were reconvening under happier circumstances but, given the setback of last Wednesday, it is as important a time as ever to be continuing our on-going conversation about building the labor movement. Obviously, the setback I’m referring to is the United States Supreme Court’s 5-4 ruling in favor of weakening unions and our movement by striking down public sector “fair share” fees with Wednesday’s…
