Happy New Year!

Happy New Year !!! We hope that this letter finds you renewed from spending time with friends and family and ready to embark on a new year full of opportunities. 

A strong and viable Union movement is a vital and important part of a thriving and robust economy.  Much has been written and discussed  about the "big" challenges facing Labor.  It is our challenge to build a movement in our community  that fights the political and legislative battles that  undermine the progress of working families; supports  affiliate Unions  in their efforts to gain ground at the bargaining table and increases the number of Union members that are active, involved and engaged in the advancement of positive economic and social justice in our community.

Our 2015 calendar starts out very busy....

****Our strategy planning meeting is particularly important for our CLC affiliates to attend.  As we develop our calendar and priorities for this years' work, we need your input.  Our work as a CLC is centered around support of our affiliates and development of program  in the areas of organizing, community engagement, political and legislative and capacity building.

As you can see, we have much to do.  Building a "union culture" both within our ranks and in the larger community that fosters increased participation among our members  is what we all want.  Working together to build power is the only way we can achieve our goals.

So let's go to work and make this the best year ever. 

In Peace and Justice,

Vonda McDaniel
President
