I am on strike from work.

It is my first time being on strike and my second day. I am one of over 100k public servants in Canada currently on the picket lines. Like seemingly everything in today's society, people have polarized opinions about this. /1
On one hand, you have the socially-minded labour supporting crowd. There is a "rally around workers" effect, often from other workers who realize they could be next or simply recognizing a big labour negotiation like this one will set the benchmark for them in the future. /2
On the other hand, there are the more individualist type or people who are frustrated by the interruption to their lives. Some may have lower salaries and benefits than me and my colleagues and wonder why we should get more. /3

→ Why BIG decisions need BIG support – share 2-minute video


Big decisions need big support. That’s surely something we’ve learnt following the fiasco of #Brexit that most of the electorate never supported.
Let’s look at it this way.

Say you’re the boss of a company with 100 employees. You let the staff vote on whether the firm should move to a new location.

▪ 37 staff voted yes,
▪ 35 staff voted no,
▪ 28 didn’t vote (many staff weren’t sure)

What happens when you give a group of Luddites the ability to say “No”? Well, @DoombergT answers.

Q: Why is nuclear energy messed up in the US?
A: The NRC, but if you dig deeper you find their regulatory warrant comes from LNT (no safe dose), the keystone for their bad policy…
The reason why I left the nuclear industry is because I didn’t want to deal with the battered wife syndrome that the nuclear industry has due to the NRC. There is a strong desire to change, but there is a fear of artificial dependence. The best way to deal with it, leave.
Yes, I have PhD in nuclear engineering and in 2018 had just invented what was to become Natrium. I chose not to publish, patent, or promote my creation. This was not a decision I took lightly.

A #strike is a withdrawal of labour by a worker, often under the instruction of a trade union.

Strikes have been happening since the workers at the Royal Necropolis at Deir el-Medina in Egypt organised an uprising in 1152 BC over late wages.…
British industrial action has a much shorter, but turbulent, history. There were withdrawals of labour in the medieval & early modern periods, although these were organised by small groups of craft workers in contravention of legislation such as the Statute of Artificers (1563).
Between 1696-1720s, the Journeymen of Feltmakers negotiated with employers & occasionally called strikes. London tailors did much the same from the 1720s, but the Combination Acts prevented workers combining in a trade union, prohibited such action, & wages were fixed by statute.

מחאת המשאיות 🚛🚚 - מה קורה בממלכת #ירדן? 🇯🇴⛽
מה הסיפור ואיך הכל התחיל?
לאחרונה, עלו מחירי הדלק במדינה.
בשנת 2012 היו שתי העלאות במחירי ה #דלק. ההעלאה השנייה (10%) שהייתה אמורה להעלות את המחיר לליטר לדינר (כ1.4$ בזמנו) הוציאה את הירדנים לרחובות וכמעט והופלה הממשלה. >>
ב2012 ההחלטה הושעתה ע"י המלך והסערה שקטה, לבינתיים.
באמצע דצמבר 2022 שוב התקבלה החלטה להעלאת מחירי הדלק אלא שהפעם מחיר הדלק הוא כבר 5 דינר לליטר מאחר וירדן כבר אינה מסוגלת לסבסד את הדלק. מסיבה זו, המלך #עבדאללה השני לא יכול לעצור את ההעלאה במחי החלטה כמו בפעם הקודמת. >>
עם משכורת ממוצעת של הרבה פחות מ2000 ש''ח העלאה כזאת היא בלתי אפשרית עבור הירדני הפשוט.
נהגי המשאיות, הנפגעים הראשונים מעליית המחירים, לא מסוגלים לעמוד בזה. פשוט לא משתלם להם להיכנס למשאית ולהניע.
כאן חשוב לזכור ולהזכיר ש #ירדן תלויה במשאיות כמו אוויר לנשימה.
רק שני שדות תעופה >>

Allan Pinkerton was born #OTD in 1819 in Glasgow, Scotland. He headed the Union Intelligence Service during the Civil War and helped lay the foundation for the U.S. Secret Service, FBI, and CIA. He also founded the famed Pinkerton National Detective Agency, which still exists.
Pinkerton emigrated to United States 1842 and founded a cooperage in Dundee, Illinois, just outside of Chicago. He became an abolitionist and operated a safe house for fugitive enslaved people on the Underground Railroad.
Pinkerton was appointed as the first Chicago police detective in 1849 after uncovering a counterfeit scheme. He founded what would become the Pinkerton National Detective Agency in 1850. The Pinkerton Agency specialized in investigating train robberies.

For the first time, the National News Agency (NNA) will not be publishing any news other than a single article published early Thursday morning, as its employees go on #strike to pressure for their demands.
In an interview with Megaphone, NNA journalist Huda Zbeeb said that the employees are demanding an improvement of their salaries and the approval of the tenure file.
She added they decided to go on #strike because "salaries are very low, and we have not received transportation allowance for 4 months," let alone the poor working conditions and equipment.

As someone who opposes Islamophobia, why should I vote strategically for a party that drafted a dog-whistle bill around it or that voted for it, over the NDP who didn't?

As someone who supports labour organizing, why would I vote strategically for a party who doesn't want to strengthen labour laws to support workers during strikes and lockouts, when the NDP does?

#canlab #strike #Elxn44
As someone who wants trade deals that are good for Canada and Canadian workers and don't contain harmful ISDs and respect our sovereignty, why would I vote strategically for any party who undermines that? #trade #cdnecon #Elxn2021

Some farmworker movement history for #CesarChavezDay: In 1955 Filipino Agricultural Workers Organizing Committee went on strike. 8 days later, the Latino National Farmworkers Association voted to join the strike (led to UFW)

The UFW strike was broad, not simply about 1 leader 🧵
Unionists like Larry Itliong & Philip Vera Cruz were socialists. They knew in order to win the strike, they had to break the bosses’ division of workers across racial groups - unite around class. Their leadership w/Dolores Huerta & Cesar Chavez broke decades of boss tactics #UFW
The solidarity clap that many of us use in movements today was created by the farmworkers, who spoke different languages, as a signal to stop working, walk off the fields, and STRIKE. It starts slow, then gets louder, faster, like their heartbeats, into a universal rally cry #UFW

🇮🇱Israeli Strikes Target #Iranian Oil Bound for Syria
Campaign against ships, using mines, shows an expansion of hostilities in the Mideast.…
#Israel has targeted at least a dozen vessels bound for Syria and mostly carrying #Iranian oil out of concern that petroleum profits are funding extremism in the Middle East, 🇺🇸U.S. and regional officials say, in a new front in the conflict between Israel and Iran.
Since late 2019, Israel has used weaponry including water mines to #strike Iranian #vessels or those carrying Iranian cargo as they navigate toward Syria in the Red Sea and in other areas of the region.
