Welcome To The New LaborTech Website

Thursday, December 30th, 2010

Welcome to the new cms-wordpress website for Labortech. This new site will allow blog posts from registered users and greater interactivity. The site is still in the process of being modified and amended.  New ideas and methods of exchange will be routine.

LaborTech 2010 was an astonishing success with news breaking presentations by Stephen Lech of USW  Local 7-669 on the plight of nuclear materials workers at the Honeywell processing plant in Metropolis Illinois;  a daring presentation by Kevin Bracken of  Australia MUA Secretary Victoria Branch/Victorian Trades Council Hall President speaking on “Corporate Media, The Trade Unions, War And 9/11″. Kevin has questioned the official US Government story of the events of September 11, 2001 and joined the ranks of over 70% of his countrymen in calling for a new investigation. Labortech also hosted a vital live streaming event of the serious struggle of Coca Cola workers in Colombia. Being a labor activist in Colombia is a life or death struggle. Labortech supports the efforts of courageous workers in Colombia to achieve safe and fair working conditions.There’s more inside.
Join us as we embark on an exciting campaign to bring voice to labor all over the globe with  new online technologies and strategies.
