Today's Labor Express Radio program is up on the web...

Last Saturday, the locked-out Steelworkers of Local 7-669 in Metropolis Illinois held a rally marking one year since the 228 workers at the Honeywell Uranium Processing plant were locked-out. And on today's program I will bring you an update of the efforts of the Steelworkers to bring the lock-out to a close. This will be part 1 of a multi-episode update. Definitely some interesting, inspiring and disturbing stuff that you want to stay tuned for.

On today's program will also get an update on the struggle over La Casita in the Pilsen neighborhood. We will hear from Chicago Teachers Union Vice President Jesse Sharkey about new Mayor Rahm Emmanuel's attack on teachers in Chicago. We will hear from nurses about cuts to the Cook County hospital system. And we will hear from labor journalist Mike Elk about a boycott of the Huffington Post...
