    [Song Excerpt- "A Million Strong" By Alexa Babakhanian and Cyn Canel Rossi]: "I believe in this moment. We can make our tomorrows. I believe in the girls who came before us who made history. I believe in dreams, hard work and equality."

    An historic Women's March On Washington will draw at least 200,000 people standing together in diversity and solidarity for protection of our rights. 

    Organizers say "The Women’s March on Washington will send a bold message to our new administration on their first day in office, and to the world that women's rights are human rights. We stand together, recognizing that defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us."

    [Song Excerpt- "A Million Strong" By Alexa Babakhanian and Cyn Canel Rossi]: "Until we're one we'll march for you. A million strong we'll fight for you. We'll shatter the ceiling and break on through."

    The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) said Friday they will file a petition with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) for a union representation election at Boeing's North Charleston, S.C. plant.

    Approximately 2850 production workers would be eligible to vote.

    The IAM postponed a union election that was scheduled in 2015 after what rthe union describes as "unprecedented political interference on the part of South Carolina lawmakers and the rampant spread of misinformation among Boeing workers. "

    But the union says this time there will be a vote.

    American Postal Workers Union President Mark Dimondstein says the U.S. Postal Service remains threatened by some who want to privatize it.

    And he says the people have to join the union in fending off privatization so America can retain universal postal service.

    Dimondstein says preserving postal service for the American people is not and should not be a partisan political issue.

    [Mark Dimondstein]: "We got a lot of people around the country on both sides of the political aisle who look at the post office - as they should - as a non-partisan issue. Something that the people of this country have a right to and need. And let's face it. If postal services go private, if postal services are degraded in many cases the areas that get hit the hardest are rural America."

    General Motors says it will invest another one billion dollars in U.S. auto plants in 2017. That's on top of the $2.9 billion in U.S. investments GM announced last year.

    United Auto Workers Vice President Cindy Estrada says the GM announcement emerged as a result of the 2015 collective bargaining agreement with the UAW.

    Estrada says the UAW is pleased about the additional investment and the union will continue to work with GM to bring more product manufacturing to the U.S. She says that through the hard work and quality products UAW workers build UAW-GM members, their families and their communities will benefit.
