LSSA to Pay Membership Fees for Members to Join AFL-CIO Constituency Groups

April 2016

LSSA2320 Union Members: Are you a person of color, LGBTQ, a woman, or a veteran?

You can join an AFL-CIO constituency group and connect to other union members working to address the challenges that workers from diverse backgrounds face. These groups reach out to the communities they serve, build solidarity, help out with organizing efforts, and ensure full participation in our movement.

Our union LSSA 2320 will pay the membership fee for any LSSA union member who is interested in joining a constituency group and is willing to bring back what you learn to help make our union stronger.
