Struggling unions( Visual )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Labor unions played major roles in the history and politics of the 20th Century. Once, unionized workers were paid substantially more in wages and benefits than non-union workers; but now the margin is smaller. Are unions now an endangered social institution? Or can unions revive? This video examines this question by reporting on a new generation of leaders struggling to reform and revitalize their unions. It has case studies of three unions undergoing dramatic change: the Carpenters union, the Teamsters, and District 37 of AFSCME, the large New York City municipal union. Interviews with union leaders, union reformers, and labor experts tie the struggles in these three unions to the broader effort to reverse the long-term decline in union membership. The focus is on the importance of the democratic process in unions if they are to fulfill the purpose of collective bargaining to give workers a voice in the decisions which control their working lives

Sound waves propagate through galactic space, through two-dimensional solids, through biological systems, through normal and dense stars, and through everything that surrounds us; the earth, the sea, and the air. We use sound to locate objects, to identify objects, to understand processes going on in nature, to communicate, and to entertain. The elastic properties of materials determine the velocity of sound in them and tell us about their response to stresses something which is very important when we are trying to construct, manufacture, or create something with any material.

Installation and Pre-Certification of CTBT Station IS59, Hawaii( )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The IS59 site survey took place on June 2-16, 1999. The site survey report recommended the installation of IS59 in an exceptionally quiet and well forested area in the Western side of the island of Hawaii. After the September PTS acceptance of the proposed array location, lease and land use agreements were executed and site work began on December 1999. The acceptance test for the integrated data acquisition system took place on May 15-18. On May 25, 2000, IS59 began collecting and archiving pressure data, and since June 1 the CD-1 data frames have been continuously sent to the PIDC. The IS59 array consists of four Chaparral 5 pressure sensors deployed in a tripartite configuration with a 1.9 km aperture. Each sensor feeds into Science Horizons digitizers and authentication boxes, which are powered via ground cables from a central solar panel array. Communication cables run from the concrete vaults that house the equipment to a central site with a 120 ft mast that support the telemetry antennas above the forest line. Continuous pressure, state of health, and meteorological data is sent via radio telemetry to the Infrasound Laboratory, which will act as the central facility that archives data and routes CD frames to the IDC through a VSAT link. This paper outlines the installation and ongoing pre-certification process of the Hawaii station, and shows various signals that have been observed during its operation
