On This Day in 1978:

A cooling tower for a power plant under construction in Willow Island, West Virginia collapses, killing 51 construction workers in what is thought to be the largest construction accident in U.S. history. OSHA cited contractors for 20 violations, including failures to field test concrete. The cases were settled for $85,000—about $1,700 per worker killed.

Call Your Senator Now!
Posted On: Dec 12, 2014

Dec. 12, 2014 | The Teamster Union is opposed to the Omnibus Spending Bill. It keeps the governement open on the backs of hardworking Americans and retirees.

The legislation would:

  • Threaten the retirement security of thousands of retirees.
  • Increases the number of hours that truck drivers can spend on the road every week.
  • Dismantle key Wall Street Reform by allowing big banks to make risky derivatives trading bets using taxpayer-insured funds.
  • Let every wealthy person put over one and a half million more dollars into politics so we will continue to see more legislation that threatens pensions and increases the hours Teamsters have to work.

Protect your job, your family and your pension.

Call Congress NOW at 888.979.9806 to be connected to your senator.
