I'll be taking an 'unpaid leave of absence' from my job at the Global Network from December 15-March 15, 2020 in order to help my friend Lisa Savage on her campaign for the US Senate in Maine. She's running as a Maine Green Independent Party member and needs to gather 2,000 petition signatures of registered Greens during that period. I'll be back to GN after March 15.

The answer to the union's problems is not to crawl in bed with the Republicans. Until union leaders get a real class and power analysis, and really fight for workers, they will continue to decline.
