The Monday, June 6 edition of The Labor Forum brings news of today’s arraignment of Robert Olsen, the police officer who shot and killed Anthony Hill. Rise Up member, Caitlyn O’Reilly Green will discuss the significance of the charges and the involvement of Rise Up in raising issues of police accountability and needed treatment for mental illnesses.
Later in the program, Myles Calvey of IBEW #2222 will call from Boston to offer an analysis of the victory of the strike against Verizon. The large rallies, demonstrations and picketlines of thousands of CWA and IBEW members, striking for over 45 days were bolstered by broad community and union support. The resulting contract pushed back on many of the concessions and won union coverage for Verizon wireless store employees.
