The document says recommend that all participants in ILNAA travel to SA be active in the labor movement and the anti-apartheid movement, and that they go with a specific agenda in mind. The document says Part 1 - send up to three ILNAA representatives in late summer to meet with various unions in different parts of SA and make arrangements for a larger delegation of representatives of unions to go to SA and begin creating union-to-union relations between union affiliates in the Midwest and SA. The document says special considerations: politically knowledgeable re U.S. and SA unions, and our ability to raise money for them to go if needed. The document says Part 2 - send first delegation of union representatives to SA to set up union-to-union relations, within 6 months of first delegation. The document says special considerations: delegation to include reps. of different unions, perhaps from different geographic areas as well as different sectors; be able to represent their local union affiliates and work to build a union-to-union relationship upon their return; can raise the money to go through their union or their own efforts. The document says Part 3 - send ILNAA representatives to observe upcoming elections in SA or perhaps for next COSATU convention. The document discusses COSATU (Congress of South African Trade Unions), ILNAA (Illinois  Labor Network Against Apartheid), SA (South Africa), and union reps (union representatives).
