On the Brain Labor Report for October 2 we talk with David Raco and Barbara Henson, union leaders with SEIU 503, sub-local #084 at Southern Oregon University. We learn how Oregon's seven schools of Higher Education won a contract dispute just as 4500 workers were on the verge of a strike. The victory is summed up in one word, SOLIDARITY.
Then we have a segment talking with with Del Hackworth a leader with SEIU 503's Jackson County Employees Association. We hear about the obstacles facing 505 county employees who have been struggling for a contract since May. We dig into details and the word SOLIDARITY comes up again in this segment.
