Your Union can support AUD

Unions, union officers, staff and members can play an important role supporting the struggle for union democracy in the entire labor movement. One place to start is to join AUD and support our work. There are several ways your union can help:

  • Members, officers, and staff can Join AUD.
  • Pass a resolution to have the union make a monthly contribution to AUD, (call it union democracy per capita!)
  • Have the union order bundles of Union Democracy Review to distribute to members at union meetings or the union hall.
  • Reprint articles from Union Democracy Review in union publications.
  • Organize AUD educational workshops for your members.
  • Link to the AUD website on your official union website (we will link back to you).
  • [your ideas here (please share them with us!)]

Thanks to the Public Employees Federation of New York State!
Mike Keenan has retired from the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation after more than 32 years as a state employee. His co-workers at the Public Employees Federation have made a generous donation to AUD in his honor. In the early 80's Keenan was a key leader of the State Coalition for a Democratic Union which ousted a crooked leadership in PEF and helped turn it into the democratic union that it is today. In all this time, he has been active in the leadership of the union at many levels. For AUD, he has always been a pillar of support, persuasive in urging various PEF-DEC units to help us. Whatever he does from now on, or wherever he goes, you can be sure he will be continuing his personal battle for social justice. Our thanks to Mike and to all our friends at PEF/DEC. (10/05)

Note: support for AUD is not for the faint of heart. The fact that a union or its officers contributes to AUD offers no protection from articles reporting on the struggles of members for greater democracy in that union, nor from any other form of assistance that AUD provides to union members.
