Pride at Work
National Pride At Work is affiliated as the newest constituency group of the AFL-CIO (American Federation of Labor & Congress of Industrial Organizations.)
The purpose of Pride At Work is to mobilize mutual support between the organized Labor Movement and the LGBT Community around organizing for social and economic justice.
We see full equality for LGBT Workers in their workplaces and unions.
We work towards creating a Labor Movement that cherishes diversity, encourages openness, and ensures safety & dignity.
We aim to educate the LGBT Community about the benefits of union membership for LGBT working people, and to build support and solidarity for the union movement in the LGBT community.
We intend to do this in the spirit of the union movement's historic motto, "An Injury to One is An Injury to All." We oppose all forms of discrimination on the job and in our unions based on sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, race, national or ethnic origin, age, disability, religion or political views.
