The Boston Globe's "Invisible Army" Stands Up

If you live anywhere near the Boston area, you’ve probably heard or read something about the Boston Globe’s recent delivery debacle.  Since the newspaper contracted with a new delivery company starting December 28, the entire delivery system collapsed, and subscribers have been puzzled and furious that their daily newspaper has vanished with little explanation and little hope for restoration any time soon. Though it isn't being reported as such, this is a labor issue.

The new Boston Globe delivery company, ACI Media Group of Long Beach California, has significantly worsened the already difficult, demanding and exploitative working situation of the workers who make newspapers appear on doorsteps across the Commonwealth everyday.

In Lynn, Massachusetts, workers found significant labor and community support for their demands as members of the Lynn Worker Center, the North Shore Labor Council, the New Lynn Coalition, IUE-CWA Local 201, the Lynn City Council and the Lynn School Committee vowed to support their struggle.

Put the Brakes on PARCC!

 

The Following Op-Ed was published by the Lynn Daily Item on 10/16/2015

The Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education is currently in the midst of moving school districts across the state towards the new Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Career (PARCC) test. This shift towards even more high stakes testing would be a disaster for public education in this state and I am proud to add my voice to the growing movement of educators, parents and students opposing the move to PARCC tests.
