Doug Rosenfeld, candidate for Montgomery County Executive will address the group.
His website is www.rosenfeld2010.com
He is a terrific speaker.
David Denholm will discuss "The Future of Unionism in America (and Maryland)"
The rise and fall of labor unions in the private and public sectors nationally and Maryland.
Review some recent developments on public opinion on labor unions.
Discuss union legislative initiatives in Congress.
- "The Employee Free Choice Act," which would deny working Americans the right to vote on whether or not to be represented by a union.
- "The Public Safety Employer-Employee Cooperation Act," which would use the power of the federal government to impose unionism and collective bargaining on state and local public safety departments (police, fire and rescue) in states, unlike Maryland, that have had the good sense to not give public sector unions monopoly bargaining privileges.
How the Obama Administration is using every available opportunity to help the unions.
Discussion of Upcoming Elections, Get Out The Vote Programs, Current Events
