How funny is this? Congressman Ryan’s staff forms Union. Ryan is running in he state of Ohio for the Senate seat of Senator Portman who’s not running. So how does the senate staff reward Ryan? They form a union. I call that poetic justice. How about his congressional staff? Oh well.
His Senate campaign staff announced it was unionizing on Tuesday, making history as the first unionized Senate campaign in the Buckeye State’s history.
The staff union said it organized with IBEW Local 1466 and that Ohio AFL-CIO President Tim Burga certified the election.

Lawmakers urge Biden to halt USPS contract. As you may or may not know, a 6 billion dollar contract was given to build electric postal trucks. But the company that got the bid is only going to make 10% of the trucks electric. Another bidder was going to use all electric trucks.
Only group that I could find that was opposed to a company called Workhorse was a small dissident West Coast group that has in the past made racist comments against a company associated with Workhorse. The groups issues were that the company was located in a area with a large community that was mostly minorities. Lordstown Motors ( a partner with Workhorse ) is close to Warren and Youngstown, Ohio. Both with large minorities.
Workhorse is a minority partner with Lordstown Motors, which is using some of Workhorse’s intellectual property in the Endurance, Lordstown Motors’ battery-powered pickup truck expected to launch in September.
Lordstown Motors’ factory in Lordstown, the former General Motors assembly plant, was likely the site to make the postal service vehicles had Workhorse been given the contract. The company’s business plan, however, was never reliant on Workhorse getting the contract.
This contract award stands in stark contrast to Biden’s Executive Order on Tackling the Climate Crisis at Home and Abroad and his public calls to transform the federal vehicular fleet to electric vehicles. Kaptur, Brown, and Ryan and are asking Biden to review the contract award.
