The federal National Labor Relations Act prohibits retaliation against groups of employees working together in in a concerted action seeking better employment conditions.

Here’s how this could work for Twitter workers facing “opt in or be fired” choice today.

Twitter employees can opt in to Musk’s “bend the knee” mandate to hold onto their jobs.
Then a small brave group could approach management and state that while everyone is willing to work hard and strive for excellence, they oppose the mandate of “long hours at high intensity.”
Requests like this are always best done respectful and in writing so it’s clear later exactly what was said.

While NRLA generally protects union organizing activities, it also protects nonunion workers simply working together (must be 2 or more) for better working conditions.

1/ Before I get into the CaseLines side of things concerning opposed motion dates, I will briefly explain the process leading up to the point of requesting an opposed motion date.

When lawyers file petitions for divorce or judicial separation in the registry of the court, it comes with a lot of backlash. So long you represent the petitioner, questions will fly around like...

“Ahn Ahn lawyer, why did you not settle these people’s marital problems. Why are you filing their case in court?”
At such moment, we just allow the officials to do the talking, they have a right to their opinion. When they finish, we would invite them to see the facts of the petition and then they calm down. They realise it goes beyond filing for divorce or judicial separation.

06/01/2019 - 78 years ago today, the longest-serving #UnitedStates #President, #Franklin D. #Roosevelt (#FDR) addressed the 77th #Congress with his "#Four #Freedoms" speech with the intent to shift #US #foreign #policy from that of #neutrality to #interventionist.
#FDR promoted the idea that the people of the world, in all nations, shared entitlement to four freedoms: that of the freedom of speech and expression, the freedom of worship, the freedom from want and the freedom from fear.
#FDR is arguably one of the most 'successful' #US Presidents. Some would argue that on the basis of his numerous social policies such as 'the New Deal'. Others, however, would argue that his role during the second world war was more prevalent to his success & everlasting legacy.
