US Labor Against the War is a national network of unionists committed to educate & mobilise for peace, workers and civil rights, within the US union movement. The group has almost 200 affiliates across the US including state and city-wide labour councils and local union branches. In 2005 it won a policy of rapid withdrawal of troops from Iraq at the convention of the peak US union body, the AFL-CIO.
This will be an opportunity to hear first hand about how trade unions in the US are resisting Bush’s criminal wars, & the cost for ordinary working people in the US from massive cuts to healthcare & other government services.
