    02/24/17 - HVALF AFL-CIO
    An early top priority of the month-old Trump administration is replacing Obamacare. That continues to evoke concern among many who say despite its problems, the Affordable Care Act is working. During a Thursday rally outside Monticello Village Hall, organized by the Hudson Valley Central Labor Council AFL-CIO, several speakers said dismantling the ACA without a better replacement would hit this region hard.

    February 22, 2017 -- We met with the Company on Tuesday, February 14, 2017, for a scheduled three-day Aircraft Maintenance Technician (AMT) negotiation session. As we completed the Maintenance Controller specific language last week, we returned to work on the Maintenance Technical Instructor language. Unlike the Controllers who will have an Appendix in the back of the book for their unique language, the Instructors will not require an Appendix as their current rules are more aligned with the current Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA).

    Donald Trump's Loud Silence on Unions
    02/22/17 - HVALF AFL-CIO
    Donald Trump traveled to a Boeing plant in South Carolina on Friday, ostensibly to poke around the company’s new jet and sit in the cockpit. But his real interest was the few thousand workers assembled in the hanger, and the television cameras behind them.
    Trump talks a lot about the ‘forgotten man,’ but so far he’s just helping Wall Street
    02/22/17 - HVALF AFL-CIO
    Donald Trump has a plan to make Apple's dividends great again. I'm talking, of course, about the administration's plans for corporate tax reform. Now, in theory, allowing companies to bring their foreign profits home at a much, much lower tax rate than they could today—as a prelude to a system where overseas earnings wouldn't be taxed at all—would bring in a flood of cash that could boost investment and jobs. In practice, though, it would probably just bring in a flood of cash that would boost investor payouts and stock prices. That, at least, is what Apple's Chief Financial Officer Luca Maestri admitted recently. Repatriating that money, he said, would give them "additional flexibility around our capital return activities."
