Now, here’s something you don’t see every day.
Tomorrow, President Obama’s Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis will be greeted by her own unionized employees picketing her.
DOL Workers Picket G20 Labor Minister’s Meeting
Across the street from the Dept of Labor; 200 Constitution Avenue NW
Apr 20 starts at 12:00 pmFrustrated Department of Labor employees will conduct an informational picket outside the G-20 labor minister’s meeting at the DOL. “We’re extremely disappointed that Secretary Solis has failed to follow through on President Obama’s vision of implementing family-friendly work policies,” says AFGE Local 12 President Alex Bastani. At issue are the “core hour” requirements for DOL workers, which in 2005 were unilaterally changed by Bush Labor Secretary Elaine Chao to 9:30a-3:30p after 25 years of beginning at 10a. [Emphasis added]
[Though we suspect that Capitol Police will be moving the picketers away from Ms. Solis’ entry point to the meeting.]
