Coalition of Labor Union Women (US)

Formed in 1974, the Coalition of Labor Union Women (CLUW) is America’s only national organization for union women. Its four basic goals of action are: to promote affirmative action in the workplace; to strengthen the role of women in unions; to organize the unorganized women; and to increase the involvement of women in the political and legislative process. In 2008, it had
members from 60 unions across the U.S. and Canada, with a network of more than 75 chapters. CLUW is endorsed by the AFL-CIO and its member unions. CLUW local chapters educate members, keep them up-to-date on a variety of issues of concern to working families, and provide a support network for women in unions
