Solidarity Without Borders – the Partnership of UE and FAT and Ranked Choice Voting

In the early 1990s, just before NAFTA was rammed through Congress, two unions – one in Mexico and one in the U.S. formed a solidarity partnership to organize workers on the jobs that were fleeing to low wage havens south of the border. This week on the Heartland Labor Forum we’ll talk to the leaders from the United Electrical Workers and the Workers’ Authentic Front about their experiences and the importance of international labor solidarity. Then we’ll explain Ranked Choice Voting which will soon be the voters’ choice in Kansas City.
