Action Agenda: March 1-2 Conference on "Labor and South Africa" held at District Council 37, AFSCME, New York City
by New York-Area Labor Committee Against Apartheid
New York, New York, United States
March 2, 1985
This draft report on the March 1-2, 1985 conference "Labor and South Africa" says the conference was organized as the first step towards concrete and sustained action by New York-area labor to support the emerging black trade union movement in South Africa and to oppose apartheid. The conference defined these areas of activity: (1) to provide technical, professional and financial assistance and resources to the South African unions such as they might request; (2) to conduct relations with the South African trade union movement in a manner which those unions shall determine and communicate to us; (3) to educate the U.S. trade union movement and the U.S. public in general about apartheid; and (4) to cooperate with other sectors of the U.S. public to bring maximum pressure on the governments of South Africa and the U.S. respectively to abolish apartheid and to encourage the establishment of democracy and majority rule in South Africa.
