Dave Wondolowski Cleveland Building and Construction Trades CouncilOn his monthly AWF appearance, Wondolowski provided his thoughts on what the future holds following the midterms. He spoke about the republican candidates who won in the election in Ohio and the fate of a So-Called “Right to Work” bill sitting in a lame duck session of Ohio General Assembly.

 

Communication Workers of AmericaFrank Matthews, Administrative Director of the Communications Workers of America District 4, was also a guest on the Nov. 13 show. Matthews was surprised by the high amount of Ohio voters, from both parties, who participated in the election. Prior to the election, he thought 2 million votes for Democratic Party candidate Rich Cordray would have been enough for him to become Ohio’s next governor. Due to the high turnout, the 2 million votes was not enough for Cordray to win. Matthews also discussed certain bills sitting in the General Assembly’s lame duck session such as So-Called “Right to Work”, free speech on college campuses and telecommunication regulations.

 

Show host Ed “Flash” Ferenc discussed how the results of the midterm elections will put power back into the hands of working Americans. He also talked about show regular, U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, who is considering a run for the White House in 2020.

Frank Matthews from Communications Workers of America on America’s Work Force Radio

Frank Matthews, Administrative Director to the Vice President with the Communications Workers of America was one of two featured guests on America’s Work Force Radio.

Communication Workers of AmericaOn Oct. 9, Frank Matthews made an appearance on America’s Work Force and he talked about elections and voting, the United States Mexico Canada Agreement (new NAFTA), drug companies and drug prices, and airline workers most recent victory. Matthews discussed how on Oct. 9, it was last day to register to vote in Ohio and to go make sure that you are registered to vote, and if you think you are registered, go double check; the best way to make your voice heard is to vote! When talking about the USMCA, Matthews said that the USMCA did nothing to help the working person and it is not preventing jobs from being off-shored or outsourced. He also mentioned how it was going to work with drug companies to lower the drug prices, which never happened. To finish his time on the show, Matthews talks about a huge airline workers victory with getting an 8 hour rest time after flights. Little by little, day by day, the workers are gaining the rights they deserve.

Cleveland Building and Construction Trades CouncilOur second guest was a frequent on the show, Dave Wondolowski. While on the show, Wondolowski also stressed the importance of registering and going out to vote. He talked briefly on Kelley & Ferraro and the benefits of the work that they do, the ECOT scandal and how money is being lost and how unfair it is to the families, and smear campaigns in the commercials right now during the Cordray and Dewine debates. Wondolowski also talked about how early voting is beneficial because it gives you the time to sit down, read things over, make an educated vote, and be able to properly fill out the ballot. To finish his time on the show, Wondolowski talked about what the building trades will be up to from now until November 6th, and construction jobs in Ohio are looking strong for the 4th quarter and are expecting to remain strong for the next 24 months!

Show host Ed “Flash” Ferenc discussed how far the Cordray and Dewine smear campaigns are willing to go, the AFL-CIO being proactive and distributing informative leaflets, how important voting and registering to vote is, and teacher’s activism going on around the country right now!
