Building Bridges Radio: Your Community & Labor Report

Produced and Hosted by Mimi Rosenberg & Ken Nash over WBAI,99.5FM in the NYC Metro Area

WHO WE ARE

WORKERS OF THE WORLD TUNE IN! Introducing "Building Bridges: Your Community & Labor Report"

Our beat is the labor front, broadly defined, both geographically and conceptually. We examine the world of work and workers on the job as well as where they live. We examine the issues that affect their everyday lives, with a particular sensitivity towards human rights abuses, environmental concerns and the U.S. drive for global domination. We record their global struggles and provide analysis of their efforts to empower themselves and transform society to provide greater democratic, human, social, political and economic rights. Each program consists of feature stories, generally interviews, within a historical context, often accompanied by sound from demonstrations, rallies or conferences, and complemented and enhanced by poetry and instrumental or vocal -- people's culture.

Over the years Building Bridges has produced a weekly one hour program, Mondays from 7-8 PM EST, covering local, national and international labor and community issues over radio WBAI-Pacifica 99.5 FM in New York. We also produce half hour version, Building Bridges National, which is distribtued to over 40 broadcast and internet radio stations.

NY's Con Ed Lockout vs. Workers' Power - 27:19  

Con Ed Wants To Turn The Lights Out On Worker Power

With
Harry Farrell, President
and Members of Local 1-2 Utility Workers Union


We’ll bring you exclusive, from the picket-line interviews with workers and the latest on negotiations with Local 1-2 leadership in the New York City’s Con Edison lockout. Con Edison illegally, more than a week ago, without notice, in the midst of bargaining over pensions, health care and wages locked out its 8,500 workers, after the union refused to surrender its ability to strike. While the sides have returned to the bargaining table tensions run high with injuries to the scab management, thinking it can do the workers jobs and service cuts to our neighborhoods.
