Seattle, Washington, United States
Undated, sometime after November 28, 1988
The minutes say Mike shared a letter drafted by Susan Clarke requesting free use of Langston Hughes Center for 4/89 conference. Steve, from the Labor Video Project in San Francisco, recently returned from an international conference in the UK; he had numerous suggestions, observations and videos. ATU 587 should affiliate directly with a transit local in South Africa (Durban perhaps). A NUMSA rep will be in the U.S. in early ’89 lining up support for a Sisters of the Long March tour and may be available to speak at 4/89 conference. Boeing may be supplying South African Airways with parts; IAM (International Association of Machinists) is on record against apartheid. The minutes say Steve showed a 26-minute video, The Long March, which covered an English tour by the same BTR workers/actors shown in Still On Strike. The minutes also mention ATU (Amalgamated Transit Union), NUMSA (National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa), the International Metalworkers Federation (IMF, International Metalworkers' Federation), South African Airways (SAA), and Mike Murphy.
