Solidarity Committee

There are issues affecting working families in the Quad Cities, across the country and around the world that need our attention and need to be addressed. The Solidarity Committee is responsible for planning actions that will bring attention to these crucial issues.

hold a rally with members of other unions in the Quad Cities on May 28, 2003 to bring attention to the National Security Personnel Plan. They are joined by Congressman Lane Evans.

"Supporting Each Other" is what the Solidarity Committee of the Quad City Federation of Labor is all about. The Solidarity Committee is the point of contact for unions who need help with rallies, informational pickets, letter-writing campaigns, etc. during their efforts to organize or settle contract disputes. The committee will be responsible for mobilizing union members as well as people in community groups that are sympathetic to working families' causes.
