Collective bargaining is the process in which working people, through their unions, negotiate contracts with their employers to determine their terms of employment, including pay, benefits, hours, leave, job health and safety policies, ways to balance work and family, and more. Collective bargaining is a way to solve workplace problems. It is also the best means for raising wages in America.

This month marks the 55th anniversary of federal support for public transportation.

The success of public transportation can be traced back to one of the late President Lyndon Johnson's greatest accomplishments which continues benefiting many Americans today.  On July 9, 1964, he signed the "Urban Mass Transportation Act of 1964" into law.  This has resulted in the investment over time of several hundred billion dollars into public transportation.
