  • Women Making Changes in Labor Unions
    Posted On: May 29, 2024

    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.
