We are a committee composed of members from the 56 locals within the structure
of District Council 37 AFSCME, AFL-CIO.
The role of the Women's Committee
is to strive to make organized Labor and the community more sensitive to the issues
of working women and their families.
Together we bring our strengths
and varied talents by delivering an unending effort to promote affirmative action
in the work place, and to organize around political action and legislation of
women's issues. We strive to enhance the quality of work life for working women
and their families by increasing the participation of women in their unions. We
also resolve to support our unions for decent wages, better working conditions,
better childcare and other issues of special concern to women.
Committee works with AFSCME International Women's Rights Department and other
organizations, such as Coalition of Labor Union Women (CLUW), who share our common
cause. We continue to support and remember the legacy given to us by our sisters
before us, living or deceased.
