Presentations and Discussion on the Split In The AFL-CIO

$3.00 Donation Requested
The recent split in July of the AFL-CIO is creating further crisis within the organized labor movement. The SEIU, Teamsters, UFCW, UNITE-HERE, LIUNA are charging that the AFL-CIO is not a democratic organization yet with the exception of the IBT do any of these unions elect their international presidents or did they ever support the rank and file electing AFL-CIO president John Sweeney?
The AFL-CIO convention presented no program or agenda to stop the termination of pension plans at UAL or how to stop the open union busting campaign going on at NWA and a host of other unionized companies. How is either grouping "Unite To Win" or the AFL-CIO going to defend organized workers much less organize the unorganized?
In the bay area hundreds of thousands of workers including state workers at CSEA-SEIU 1000, CUE-UC, CAN-UC, UPTE-UC, San Francisco Chronicle IBT-GCIU4 workers, Sutter Hospital Workers SEIU-UHRW, SF Hotel Workers UNITE-HERE2, NWA-AMFA, Bricklayers, Claremont Hotel UNITE-HERE 2850 are without contracts or out on strike.
These unions and the rank and file need to unite to defend their jobs and their union. This meeting will discuss what went on in Chicago at the rank and file conference and what we need to do to defend our unions.
