A month after Hurricane Maria flattened Puerto Rico, most of the roughly 300 union workers who flew there to aid with recovery efforts have returned home — with mixed feelings about the island’s recovery. President Trump gave himself a “10” for the hurricane response on Thursday when he met with Puerto Rico’s Gov. Ricardo Rossello at the White House. But on the ground in Puerto Rico, workers confronted a complex crisis with no easy resolution.
Several thousand jet mechanics who work for American Airlines hope President Trump will swoop in and prevent their jobs from flying away. At a Times Square rally on Wednesday, TWU leader John Samuelsen said he’d written to the country’s commander-in-chief to make him aware of the possible loss of thousands of U.S.-based jobs to company outsourcing, even though the airline denied that such a plan is in the works.
Fresh off a bruising loss in a decades-long attempt to unionize a Nissan factory in the south, United Auto Workers is wading into battle again — this time at a foreign-owned glass factory in Ohio. Workers at Fuyao Glass America, in the small town of Moraine, have filed a request with the National Labor Relations Board for a union election. It’s the first step toward UAW representation in the Chinese-owned factory where roughly 1,500 locals work. Wooed by Ohio officials, including Republican Gov.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
