Join the Winning Side!

Now is the time for your commitment. A good start would be to help the Dallas AFl-CIO screen candidates and get ready to win the 2022 elections. Contact [email protected].

There are many progressive organizations that would be overjoyed to get you. The strongest of them are labor-related. We are seeing a string of good union contract settlements because of the upsurge in courageous workers on the battle lines. A sterling example was set this week when nurses in Massachusetts won the longest nurses’ strike in labor history!

 Nurses win 301-day strike

COVID Isn’t Stopping Us

The Auto Workers Union wisely postponed the leadership conference that was scheduled for January 10 in Fort Worth. The Texas AFL-CIO COPE Conference and the Texas Alliance for Retired Americans convention, both scheduled for mid-January, are going on-line. The Dallas AFL-CIO is doing its early election work on-line.

We aren’t stopping. We aren’t even pausing!
