That Union Thing

National Labor Relations Board Regional Director Cornele A. Overstreet has ruled that taxi drivers employed by AAA Transportation/Yellow Cab are employees and not independent contractors.

Paralleling a ruling for Fedex Home Delivery, Inc., Overstreet noted that drivers' opportunities for loss or gain were not real or feasible, and that their employer exerted significant control over them. Drivers were seeking to be represented by the Office and Professional Employees International Union (OPEIU).

Broadcast workers at the University of Wisconsin and the University of Minnesota have ratified their first contract with the Big Ten Network, the first ever college sports network union contract. Workers voted to be represented by IATSE in 2014, and their new four-year contract provides guaranteed pay increases, health contributions, and will eventually provide for pension and annuity contributions.
