LAME DUCKS MAY KILL O.T...TAKE ACTION

Republican congressional leaders are planning this week to kill a measure that would block President George W. Bush’s new rules that take overtime pay rights away from some 6 million workers. Send a message to your congressional representatives to protect overtime pay at www.unionvoice.org/campaign/Restore_OvertimePay . The House and Senate, back for a lame duck session after the Nov. 2 elections, are expected to vote on an omnibus appropriations bill, which will combine the fiscal year 2005 Labor, Health and Human Services and Education appropriations bills and several other unfinished spending measures. Both houses passed amendments to the Labor spending bills that would rescind most of the changes that limit eligibility for overtime pay, but observers expect the amendments to be dropped from the omnibus bill.
