Pennsylvania Labor Movement Stronger with New Alliance
Frank Snyder, state director of the Pennsylvania AFL-CIO, reports on the Pennsylvania union movement’s restructuring efforts.
Just more than two years ago, over the course of nine months, the Pennsylvania labor movement restructured and created organizations called area labor federations to better mobilize, strengthen and organize union members. Through the labor councils, the area labor federations were designed to support affiliate organizing and contract, legislative and electoral campaigns. This week, the Pennsylvania New Alliance Coordinating Committee met to discuss the progress of the relatively new structure and to plan strategies to ensure that the area labor federations can become even more effective tools of mobilization.
