Mailing signed by Bill Stewart (Director, Region 4, United Auto Workers), Rosetta Daylie (Associate Director, Council 31, American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), Charles F. Williams (Grand Lodge Representative, International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers), and Johnnie Jackson (President, Chicago Chapter, Coalition of Labor Union Women (CLUW). The letter invites people to a meeting on November 23 at the Amalgamated Clothing and Textile Workers to discuss forming a labor solidarity network in Illinois to support our union brothers and sisters in South Africa. A labor network could communicate messages of solidarity to South African unions when they go on strike, notify local unions of actions that take place in Chicago, and distribute current news to local union newspapers; it also could build broader support for boycotts, such as the Shell Oil boycott initiated by the AFL-CIO. Contacts are Kathy Devine, Carl Shier and Johnnie Jackson.
