DC 37 Women’s Committee
President, Local 420
Meetings scheduled the 2nd Tuesday of the month except July and August.
Special celebrations for Black History Month in February and Women’s History Month in March.
We are a committee composed of members from the locals within the structure of District Council 37 AFSCME, AFL-CIO.
The role of the Women’s Committee is to strive to make organized Labor and the community more sensitive to the issues of working women and their families.
Together we bring our strengths and varied talents by delivering an unending effort to promote affirmative action in the work place, and to organize around political action and legislation of women’s issues. We strive to enhance the quality of work life for working women and their families by increasing the participation of women in their unions. We also resolve to support our unions for decent wages, better working conditions, better childcare and other issues of special concern to women.
The Women’s Committee works with AFSCME International Women’s Rights Department and other organizations, such as Coalition of Labor Union Women (CLUW), who share our common cause. We continue to support and remember the legacy given to us by our sisters before us, living or deceased.
