INTERNAL ORGANIZING

Simply put, Internal Organizing means building the strength of your union through recruitment of new members and through maximum participation and involvement of all members.

Recent Years have been difficult for labor unions, with a climate of union-busting growing aomong both public and private employers. As employers try to weaken our unions, we are faced with the challenge of having to revitalize our locals and renew our members' commitement to the labor movement.

Internal organizing is the key to strength and success for local unions in many of our most important activities, such as contract bargaining, settling grievances, correcting workplace problems, lobbying and even revitalizing and sustaining our Central Labor Councils.
