Private and public trade and labor unions may be battered and on the ropes in our new post-Citizens United gilded age, but one municipal union’s still kicking butt and taking names for its rank and file members. Join women’s rights in the workplace advocates Jack Tuckner and Deborah O’Rell as they visit with Robert Cassar, President of CWA Local 1182, the labor union  representing 3,000 traffic and sanitation enforcement agents in NYC. Hear how Robert has fought for and won numerous important bargaining concessions from the City, including substantially enhancing the status, safety and pay for his hardworking brother and sister members (who perform a thankless, difficult and dangerous job) through his staunch advocacy and activism for more than 20 years, the longest serving President in the history of the local.

Celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the Violence Against Women Act with women’s rights advocates Jack Tuckner and Deborah O’Rell, as they discuss the history and purpose of VAWA, the great good it has accomplished so far (with no thanks to the Republicans in Congress and on the Supreme Court who have blocked and gutted the law meant to protect and support survivors of domestic violence), and as they field a thoughtful call from a listener who ties it into the serious DV problems plaguing (and playing out openly in) the National Football League.
