          Fukushima Five Years Later: Unfolding and Still Uncontrolled
    
          March 12, 2016
    
          March 11th marked the 5th anniversary of the Fukushima nuclear disaster, one of only two nuclear accidents classified as a level 7 event on the International Nuclear Event Scale, (the other being Chernobyl).

          Chicago Teachers Union Rallies with Community and Labor Allies Ahead of April 1 Mass Action
    
          March 12, 2016
    
          The United States rarely sees massive collaborative actions involving workers across unions and industries and non-union activists. Elsewhere in the world, such strikes—whether symbolic daylong actions or more prolonged walkoffs—are more commonplace.

          California Bill Would Let Gig Workers Organize for Collective Bargaining
    
          March 12, 2016
    
          Gig workers include Uber and Lyft drivers, DoorDash and Postmates food delivery drivers, Handy house cleaners and Amazon "flex" workers who deliver packages. They are technically independent contractors who set their own terms of employment — taking as many or as few jobs as they want — but they have no control over wages, which can be changed at a whim by the companies in charge.
