U.S. Labor Antiwar or Related Statements & Groups, Comprehensive List


Note from the Editors of Labor Standard: The following list, revised as of Dec. 10, 2002, was produced by New York City Labor Against War (NYCLAW) and partly updated by the “Portside” e-mail information service. Many of the labor statements listed here have already been posted on the Labor Standard web site, but much of the information is new, and this is a convenient summation, reflecting the burgeoning opposition within U.S. labor to the impending war on Iraq.

Among the labor resolutions that have appeared since this “comprehensive list” was compiled, readers will find two especially significant ones on our web site: the resolution by United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) Local 1776, adopted on Dec. 20; and a new resolution by the San Francisco Labor Council, adopted on Dec. 9 and endorsing the antiwar demonstrations scheduled for the Martin Luther King Day weekend, Jan. 18–20, 2003. Unfortunately, some Internet program has truncated all the e-mail addresses of antiwar groups in the list below. That information may be obtainable by contacting NYCLAW directly.

From: LaborAgainstWar@yahoogroups.com

[This list has been updated by PortsideMod with the AFSCME entry. The list is a work in progress; please reply to NYCLAW at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/LaborAgainstWar/files/ with corrections and/or further information so that the list can be updated.]
