Navistar's computer systems had a malfunction and they were unable to take our union dues out of our checks on the first paycheck of the month. They will come out on the paycheck on the 19th. This wasn't the fault of Local 5010 in any way shape or form, but be aware of that deduction next week.

Workers at a Nissan plant in Canton, Miss., picked a bird in the hand when they recently voted against forming a union, and that’s understandable. Veteran workers, who generally opposed the union, make $26 an hour. That is less than the nearly $30 an hour for similar autoworkers in unions at the major American carmakers — but almost twice the median hourly wage in Mississippi.

The Tulsa Bus Plant will have a temporary shutdown on Wednesday, August 30th and Thursday, August 31st. The Company attempted to file a Mass Unemployment claim on behalf of the employees but the State of Oklahoma would not approve as this was not a full week shutdown.

What this means for those off work during Aug 30 and Aug 31 is you will be responsible for filing your own initial claim.

The rally call of “Buy American” isn’t new, but the proposition looks very different in 2017 than it did in the 1970s. Back then, there were almost 20 million workers in the U.S. making goods in factories across the country (today, it’s 12.3 million). These workers made clothes, baseballs, toys, blue jeans, electronics and a host of goods you could find in your neighborhood store. If you want some Brach’s candy in 2017, it will come from their factory in Mexico.
