This is the full 3-4-13 episode of the Labor Express Radio program.
On today’s episode of Labor Express Radio we bring you audio on a variety of topics from a variety of sources...
From our friends at Building Bridges in NYC we have a speech by Dave Coles, National President of the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union of Canada recorded at CUNY University in New York, on January 17. Coles talks about his union’s opposition to the Keystone XL pipeline.
Than regular listeners to Labor Express Radio will certainly be familiar with Doug Cunningham, producer of Workers Independent News, whose weekly labor news highlights open every program of Labor Express. What you might not know is that Doug has launched his own hour long radio program, based in Madison Wisconsin. It is called the People's Mic. It airs every weekday, from 5-6pm on 92.1 FM on WXXM Madison. You can also listen to the program live and recorded online at... http://www.themic921.com/pages/peoplesmic.html
I thought I would bring you a excerpt of a recent episode of People’s Mic. On Friday’s program, Doug interviewed Leo Gerard, President of the United Steelworkers Union. They start their conversation about the sequester which kicked in on Friday, but they actually wrap up their conversation talking about the Keystone XL pipeline.
And finally from our friends at Labor Beat TV we have more coverage of the fight back against the shut down of public schools in Chicago
