Taylor Report: Full Contract Disclosure Before We Vote, Segment 1

1 semana ago
Phil speaks with Rebecca Keetch, a member of UNIFOR Local 222 who is laid off from the Oshawa GM plant. Sister Keetch, is a member of the Solidarity Movement, a group of rank-and-file autoworkers who are circulating an unprecedented petition demanding that the UNIFOR leadership publish the full text of proposed collective agreements online, so that members can know what they are voting for. The practice until now has been to give members just a summary of "highlights." When the first set of 1,540 signatures was sent to Jerry Dias last Friday, Sister Keetch said, "Unifor autoworkers are fighting back against a longstanding, undemocratic contract ratification process. This petition was launched to fight for better democracy, better transparency, and greater membership empowerment in the collective bargaining process." The petition can be found at: solidaritymovement.ca/petition

Sea Change Radio: Daniel Kirk-Davidoff on Grids + Climate Reports, Segment 1

1 semana ago
Did you lose power at some point this summer? Between the gaps in electricity service, sheltering in place, the fires on the West Coast, and the multiple tropical storms hitting in the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico, people in the US have many reasons to be averting their gaze from the future of our climate. There are, however, a few courageous souls in our institutions of higher learning who persist in imagining what the world will look like a decade or more into the future. This week on Sea Change Radio, we speak to Daniel Kirk-Davidoff, a research scientist at Underwriters Laboratories. He gives us a glimpse into the 2035 climate report from the Center for Environmental Public Policy at the University of California, Berkeley - there's actually some good news in there. He also sheds light on the complex choices and gambles that result in rolling blackouts across the US. While record high temperatures battered the world this summer, not every country's electrical grid responded in the same way.
