Convention Time

Brothers and Sisters,

This week several members of the Interfaith Coalition for Worker Justice travel to Washington D.C. to lobby our representatives in person on the Employee Free Choice Act and health insurance reform. Our fight goes on! Also the UALR Bowen School of Law will be hosting a debate on the Employee Free Choice Act next week on Monday September 14th - you won't want to miss this!

Alan will be headed to Pittsburgh for the AFL-CIO's 26th Constitutional Convention, which runs from Sept. 13-17. We'll be electing new leadership there. The Arkansas AFL-CIO has endorsed Secretary-Treasurer Richard Trumka in his bid for President. Hope to see you in PA! If you can't make the trip, be sure to check out the AFL-CIO Convention website. There you can: Keep track of events with the Convention Schedule; Get fast-breaking updates on Convention action; Watch video clips of the Convention floor discussions; See photos from Convention events as they happen.

In solidarity,

Alan Hughes, President
Ricky Belk, Secretary-Treasurer
