Letter from Bill Stewart, Director Region 4, UAW, asking union leaders to serve on the Steering Committee of the Illinois Labor Network Against Apartheid (ILNAA). The letter says more than 30 union representatives met on November 23 at the Amalgamated Clothing and Textile Workers Union (ACTWU) to form ILNAA, which will serve as a communications link to and from local unions about South Africa and will take action to oppose the trials and imprisonment of union leaders in South Africa, support the Shell Oil boycott, and lobby the Illinois Congressional delegation for passage of comprehensive sanctions against South Africa. The Steering Committee will meet on January 11 to concur on an action plan. ILNAA Coordinator Kathy Devine is contact person. [Note: This letter is addressed to Harold Rogers, Chicago Chapter, Coalition of Black Trade Unionists (CBTU). Identical letters were sent to other union leaders.]
