Civil Rights

Advancing Civil Rights

The civil rights committee serves as guardian over the local union's interest to assure members full rights regardless of religion, race, creed, color, sex, political affiliation, national origin, age or handicap. It informs members of steps and procedures, including filing of complaints and hearings, whenever a member or members believe their rights have been violated by management or other union members. The committee works toward the elimination of discrimination in the workplace and the community.
