"April 27, 2012: AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka joined employees and the WGAE today to demand that Atlas Media, a major non-fiction television production company, join the "Race to the Top" and to provide health care for its employees. Writers and producers gathered outside of Atlas’ midtown Manhattan offices, staging an actual race along the street to demand that the company not settle for "last place" when it comes to employee health benefits." http://nonfictionunited.org/
