The Coalition of Labor Union Women

The Coalition of Labor Union Women was formed in 1974. It is America’s only national organization for union women.

The primary mission of CLUW is to unify all union women in a feasible organization to determine our common problems and concerns and to develop action programs within the framework of our unions to deal effectively with our objectives.

CLUW has 4 main goals which are; to promote affirmative action in the workplace, to strengthen the role of women in unions, to organize the unorganized women, and to increase the involvement of women in the political and legislative process.

The Kate Mullany Chapter of CLUW is based in Albany, NY. It’s main focus is to strengthen the role of women in their respective unions by focusing on leadership development. In addition, the KM CLUW chapter is supporting its National organization by supporting labor campaigns that affect women and families: Equality Pay Act, Spread the Word, and increasing minimum wage.
