Your labor movement continues to empower working families through elections and other solidarity work. Your next big opportunity to get involved is the phone banking party 10AM-2PM Saturday, May 29, at 1408 N Washington.


Socializing is double fun when we know we are really making a difference! Contact Political Director Mariah Warwick.

Solidarity Is Growing

North Texas activists turned out on May 26th in support of Steelworkers who had been locked out, deprived of their jobs, by ExxonMobile in Beaumont on May 1st. We picketed the mighty corporation’s shareholder meeting in Irving.

Labor is raising funds for the 650 victimized Beaumont families. Checks with the memo line “Strike & Defense Fund” may be sent to: USW LU 13-243/Karla Konning, Treasurer/2490 S. 11th Street/Beaumont, TX 77701. The Texas AFL-CIO has also set up a convenient on-line donation account.

Inside the ExxonMobile shareholder's meeting, the Steelworkers were able to pass an important resolution affecting worker safety.


Teamster and YALL member Ryan Haney joined the picket after returning from a solidarity trip for striking Mineworkers in Brookwood, Alabama. Haney and other supporters brought a hefty cash donation.

Sign up to join North Texas labor's Solidarity Brigade.
