How CLUW Is Structured

This section outlines how CLUW is Structured and some of the various Programs that we offer to our membership.



How CLUW Operates
Jan 02, 2014

CLUW's National Office is located in Washington, DC and is directed by the National President. The National Staff consists of an Executive Director and a Field and Membership Organizer.

Its governing body consists of a National Officers Council, composed of 19 women union leaders, CLUW's Presidents Emeritae, General Counsel, and a National Executive Board (NEB) elected at CLUW's Biennial Convention.

CLUW's National President is Connie Leak of the UAW.

The National Officers Council is representative of members from a diverse crosssection of unions within the organization. The council meets at least six times annually to act on business between Executive Board meetings and Conventions.

The National Executive Board (NEB) includes members of the National Officers Council, State Presidents, Chapter Presidents, Union Delegates and Chapter Delegates. Union and chapter delegates are elected in proportion to their membership in CLUW. Board meetings are held three times per year. Educational conferences are usually held the day preceding each NEB meeting.

The NEB maintains Standing Committees in the following areas: Affirmative Action, Archives, Constitution, CLUW Elections, Family Issues, Finance, Minority Issues, New Technologies, Legislative, Mature Women Workers, Organizing the Unorganized, Women in Non-Traditional Jobs, Media Recruitment, Women in Union Leadership. Task Forces are maintained on Women's Health Issues, Violence Against Women and Young Women Workers.

The CLUW Center for Education & Research located at the National CLUW office was established in 1979 as a separate non-profit, tax-exempt entity of CLUW. The Center was established to provide the necessary tools for union and CLUW members to become effective advocates for working women in the workplace and the labor movement.

CLUW Mission Statement
Feb 12, 2014

The Coalition of Labor Union Women is America's only national organization for union women. Formed in 1974, CLUW is a nonpartisan organization within the union movement.

The primary mission of CLUW is to unify all union women in a viable organization to determine our common problems and concerns and to develop action programs within the framework of our unions to deal effectively with our objectives.

At its founding convention in Chicago, Illinois, CLUW adopted four basic goals of action: to promote affirmative action in the workplace; to strengthen the role of women in unions; to organize the unorganized women; and to increase the involvement of women in the political and legislative process.

These goals continue to be the cornerstone of CLUW's activities as members speak out for equal pay, child and elder care benefits, job security, safe workplaces, affordable health care, contraceptive equity, and protection from sexual harassment and violence at work.

With members from 54 international and national unions across the U.S. and Canada, CLUW has a strong network of more than 40 chapters. CLUW is endorsed by the AFL-CIO and its international and national unions. CLUW local chapters educate members, keep them up-to-date on a variety of issues of concern to working families, and provide a support network for women in unions.
