The Metropolitan Washington Council, AFL-CIO has just released the 2015 Directory of Local Unions. The Directory is a handy guide to the local labor movement, listing nearly 200 Council affiliates representing a broad cross-section of 150,000 area workers, from athletes to writers, government workers to the construction trades. For a free copy, send a self-addressed stamped envelope to the Metro Council at 888 16th Street NW, Washington DC 20006, Suite 520. Read more below...
The annual Directory has been completely updated with the latest information on the Council’s nearly 200 affiliated locals, as well as Council allies in the community and constituency groups. We’ve expanded our listings to include even more email addresses and major employers for each local, as well as social media, where available. Also updated this year is the Union Shop listing of union employers, including restaurants, hotels, parking garages, movie theaters, printers and more. The 2015 Directory also features a Quick Index (page 7), the Council's Calendar of Events (page 2), labor-themed quotes throughout, and an updated colorful cover. New this year are a sample Weingarten Rights card (page 91) and a labor quotes index (page 90). We’re very pleased to acknowledge the financial support of American Income Life (AIL), Amalgamated Bank and Labor 411 as our sponsors this year.
