Quotes

"Since the trade agreement is still not public and not finished, it's not yet possible to have that full debate" said Merkley, adding that he would judge the eventual trade agreement on "whether it creates American jobs or destroys American jobs."
"The DOT's decision to deny an exemption for NAI is particularly meaningful as our country gets back to work after celebrating the achievements of American workers over the Labor Day holiday. The DOT's decision upholds decades of work by AFA and our colleagues across the globe to create opportunities for aviation workers while expanding business. We recognize Secretary Foxx for his leadership in ensuring that the U S aviation system remains the safest in the world. We urge the DOT to reject the outstanding foreign air carrier permit outright in order to maintain labor standards and U S safety and security regulations."
"The goal of the demonstration today is just getting awareness out to the public about why we're on heightened alert for potentially -- maybe -- going on strike" said Jim Feeney, a Bangor-based FairPoint technician and union mobilizer
"We have been struggling for many years to have a fair process where the workers can select a union, free of intimidation" said Mike Casey , president of Local 2, adding that about 95 percent of the hotels in San Francisco are under contract or close to a settlement
