The Joint Board Fur, Leather and Machine Workers Union (FLM) was a leather workers union. In early 1976, Henry Foner, President of FLM, attended a seminar in Cuba with members of the Angola liberation movement/political party MPLA. In the late 1970s, Foner and FLM were involved in the Committee to Oppose Bank Loans to South Africa.
