Whereas, AFL-CIO constituency groups represent the full diversity of the growing American workforce, and
Whereas, constituency groups bring a perspective and a voice not always heard in the labor movement, and
Whereas, the elected officers who site on the State Federation Executive Boards and Central Labor Council Executive Boards represent a range of unions, industries and regions and often form the core of the labor movement, and
Whereas, these Executive Boards and Councils are targeted to carry out all AFL-CIO initiatives such as Street Heat and Union Cities,
Therefore Be It Resolved that PAW/AFL-CIO request that the AFL-CIO work to gain official representation on State Federation and Central Labor Council Executive Boards for all its’ constituency groups.
And Be It Further Resolved that PAW/AFL-CIO contact the other AFL-CIO constituency groups and encourage them to join together in gaining official representation for constituency groups.
