The LJDC Monthly Meeting
Sunday, July 22, 2018
2 - 4:30 pm
PROGRAM:SPEAKERS: Nate Fairman
PROGRAM: LABOR 10l, the history of organized labor in the United States and how it is now under attack from the Republican Party, beginning with recent efforts to end public employee bargaining in the U.S. and then moving on to the elimination of private sector unions in the U.S.
For years labor unions have been vilified and undermined, forgetting about the benefits unions have brought to workers, including the 8-hour day, the 40-hour week, time and a half for overtime, an end to child labor, unemployment insurance and the right to organize unions. At the present time one of organized labor's goals is to strengthen its relationship with the Democratic Party.
Presenting the program will be Nate Fairman, Business Manager of IBEW 465, San Diego, which represents electric-line men and women and other utility workers. Nate was born and raised in San Diego, is married and the proud father of a 10-month-old son. He has been an IBEW member for 11 years. His union's headquarters is where the monthly meeting of the Council of Democratic Clubs is held off of Miramar Road.
