From: Working IN these Times.
Last week, at the USW convention in Las Vegas, the two unions (USW and Los Mineros) signed an enhanced solidarity agreement (PDF link) that brings them even closer together. For the time being, the two unions will remain separate organizations with separate legal structures; however, they will take steps to begin working much more closely together than they have in the past. The agreement will establish worker councils to represent employees at "major common employers." These councils will work together “to facilitate exchange information, strategic cooperation, solidarity support, and organizing initiatives,” the union announced.
