Supporting the PRO Act Discussed on America’s Work Force

Mark Gruenberg, labor writer for Press Associates Union spoke with America’s Work Force on Nov. 4 about a union supporting the Protect the Right to Organize (PRO) Act.

Mark Gruenberg PAI Press Associates Inc., Union NewsGruenberg discussed the National Labor Rights Board (NLRB) fighting recent injustices against worker rights and fighting to make sure workers voices are being heard during bargaining. He said that the Trump administration has shown time and time again that they are against unions and have been trying to pass anti-worker legislation, but the NLRB have been remaining strong in their battle against worker rights oppression. Gruenberg also talked about the Communication Workers of America, CWA, and how they said if a candidate supports the PRO Act, the CWA will offer their open support for that candidate. The CWA is not one to hide their support for workers and worker rights, so if a candidate comes out in support of the PRO Act, you can expect the CWA to support that candidate. Lastly, he talked about the United Auto Workers and Ford Motors reaching a tentative agreement on a contract.

Sue McConnell Better Business BureauSue McConnell, president of the Better Business Bureau in Cleveland discussed three scams to be on the lookout for during the month of November. One of the scams was a “30-Day Success Plan” which is a get rich fast scam where a person would buy into the company at different levels, and the only way for that person to make money is to distribute fliers, which they had to pay for, and try to recruit other people. The second scam was a Jenny B Utah Marketing firm that would send a woman gift cards congratulating them on their pregnancy. The gift cards were for baby products, where shipping was more than the products so the discounts were pointless and the products they received were poorly made, making them not worth the money. The last scam McConnell told listeners to be aware of are social media coupon scams. An ad will appear on your webpage of a brand name product at a discount price and once a person clicks the link, their computer would be exposed to malware, which could access their personal information.

AWF host Ed “Flash” Ferenc spoke about Ford Motors committing to investing one billion dollars to Ohio assembly plants in new product lines, facility upgrades, and more.
