WorkWeek 1-12-23 Brazil Coup & Labor, The US AFL-CIO Attack On Mexico Ford Workers, TWU Pres On SWA Meltdown

WorkWeek gets a direct report on the insurrection attempted coup in Brazil with Brazilian transit worker Fabio Basco who is also with the independent trade union federation Conlutas.

Next WorkWeek looks at the 33rd anniversary of the violent assault by 150 thugs on Mexico City Ford assembly plant workers that injured many and killed one worker. It was later learned that it had been funded by the CIA, National Endowment For Democracy and organized with the AFL-CIO leadership.

We interview retired UAW Local 909 president Frank Hammer about this attack on January 8, 1990, the continued cover-up and the relevance for UAW auto workers and US workers for today. The US government through NED are giving $75 million to the "Solidarity Center" for operations in over 60 countries.

Last WorkWeek interviews TWU International president John Samuelson about the meltdown of SWA and the lack of regulation and oversight of the airline and railroad industry. He also discusses the effect of covid on his members who penalized by management for wearing masks.
The TWU which represents 150,000 workers also represents workers at South West Airlines.
