Labor Minute Radio

The UFF-FSU Chapter initiated the “Labor Minute” series on WFSU in April of 2014. "Labor Minute" shares stories of the American Labor movement, including the challenges and success of American workers. All of these recordings were researched, written, and recorded by UFF activists. "Labor Minute" is sponsored by UFF-FSU with help from the Florida AFL-CIO and the Big Bend Labor Chapter.
