    Labor Day weekend is just around the corner, and there is plenty to get involved in! On Sunday, September 3, the Duluth Central Labor Body will be walking in the Duluth-Superior Pride Parade. Lineup is at 11 at the intersection of Broadway St. and Ogden Ave.; the parade will step off at noon.
    Last week, the Northern Wisconsin Building and Construction Trades Council signed a Letter of Intent for a Project Labor Agreement with Minnesota Power to ensure the construction of the Nemadji Trail Energy Center (NTEC) is done with skilled union labor.
    Union members and allies turned out on Friday to support Steelworkers Local 9460 and the Minnesota Nurses Union.

Members of USW 9460 who are covered by the Red Book contract are currently in negotiations with Essentia, and were out at 7 a.m. to call for a fair contract.


    Mike Syversrud retired May 31 after serving 23 years as the region’s elected business agent for Cement Masons Local 633. He represented Local 633 members across northern Minnesota, North Dakota, and seven counties in northern Wisconsin.

    After an unsuccessful union vote at Vikre Distillery, some workers now are simply looking forward. “It sucks to lose, but I’m hopeful for the future,” said Brandon Hartung, a front-of-house worker at Vikre who was one of the leadership group in the push for unionization.

    One of Minnesota’s largest labor unions has rescinded its endorsement of state Rep. Ruth Richardson, DFL-Mendota Heights, saying she oversaw a fierce union-busting campaign as CEO of Planned Parenthood’s affiliate in the Upper Midwest.

    The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Glacier Northwest v. Teamsters Local 174 is outrageous—valuing property over workers’ rights. But it could have been much worse. Unions still have the right to strike. Employers still can’t generally sue unions in state court for losses caused by strikes.
