 FOCUSING ON ISSUES THAT WILL SUPPORT, INSPIRE, MOTIVATE, AND AFFECT POSITIVE CHANGE WITHIN OUR WORKFORCE.

Whereas, we are approaching the 21st century with women making up half the workforce of our country and an increasing part of the Transport Workers Union of America,

And whereas, the National and Local Officers of the Transport Workers Union of America must take the lead in organizing, recruitment, education and the development of women to be strong rank-and-file and strong leaders to serve the needs of our increasingly diverse membership,

Be it resolved, The Transport Workers Union of America has created a Women's Sub-Committee with the objective to promote concerns of women in our great Union and of working Union women everywhere.

In as much, we have begun the process to encourage our Locals to have educational programs that build self-esteem among our Sisters and encourage participation among women in all our Locals, to have on-going education programs in leadership, politics and political action, to assist and support women in the workplace on issues that confront them on a daily basis; such as, affordable child care and elder care, sexual harassment, workplace violence and discrimination, and to provide information and resource referrals on women's health issues such as, but not limited to, breast cancer and HIV. Because of these objectives our slogan will be "Each one...teach one for Union women everywhere."

Approved at the International Executive Council Meeting on June 9, 1998.
