April 10, 2018 – Virginia Teachers Strike And Puerto Rico Privatization

WorkWeek radio hears from West Virginia teachers who organized to fight back against attacks on their healthcare and pensions by the politicians. They discuss how they used facebook to educate, unite and fight back. This was presented at a panel at 2018 Labor Notes in Chicago on 4/6/18.
Next WorkWeek looks at the struggle against privatization and union busting in Puerto Rico. We interview Ricardo Ortiz who is a labor researcher and involved in solidarity with Puerto Rican unions.
He discusses the role of a control board appointed by former president Obama and the effort to privatize all schools and social services.
