      Juneteenth commemorates the end of slavery in the United States — but this day is about more than an end. It also about a beginning and the ongoing work toward a society free from racism in all its forms.

      "In 2024, Black workers continue to struggle for workplace equity and to organize against low wages and dangerous working conditions that are a function of systemic racism," AFSCME President Lee Saunders said yesterday. "It is also a time for reflection on how far we still have to go. By banding together in strong unions and using their voice on the job, Black workers are closing pay gaps and making progress toward eliminating discrimination in the workplace. However, our work is anything but finished.


      "The arc of the moral universe still needs bending toward justice," Saunders added. "So let Juneteenth, our nation’s second Independence Day, serve as a call to action to pick up the baton and keep up the fight, to continue educating, organizing and mobilizing for true liberty and justice for all."

      Every year, UALE sponsors 4 regional “women’s schools”. These residential programs typically last between 4 and 5 days, and include classes and workshops on a variety of labor-related topics. Women from all over the country and beyond learn the skills and knowledge needed to play leadership roles in their organizations. Visitors from labor unions and workers’ organizations in other countries frequently participate. One of the most valuable aspects of the schools is the chance to meet and network with other labor women from around your region and beyond.

      An article was posted on recently entitled "How women are changing labor unions" and CLUW Executive Director, Virginia Rodino, was featured in the article. 

      Virginia Rodino, executive director of the Coalition of Labor Union Women, tells Women Rule that the coalition has been working to incentivize members of underrepresented groups to run for office within their unions, as their membership grew post-pandemic.

      The pandemic itself played a role in boosting union numbers among women of color, according to Rodino. Many were essential workers toiling to keep the country running during lockdown, often in extremely dangerous environments, like hospitals. People were dying on the job — driving home for them the importance of union labor protection, Rodino says.

      “We as a society started seeing previously invisible workers as actually essential, who were largely women of color,” Rodino says. During that time, she says, “there was enormous organizing that happened. It’s people themselves who are recognizing their own strength.”  Read the entire article here.
