MAKE IT HAPPEN!
The Southwest Regional Joint Board represents workers in Arkansas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Texas. Our members work in manufacturing, food service, laundries, distribution and Xerox graphics. We also represent workers in the Public Sector. Our members work diligently on issues affecting them every day: Immigration Reform, Health Care, Fight for $15, Organizing new members, Racial and Economic Justice, building coalition partners, Educating members and much more.
Southwest Region mission is to build a stronger union, to lead and intensify the struggle for Workers Power, ensure Economic Justice, embrace diversity and secure the promise of Liberty for workers, families and communities. The Southwest Region recognizes that our changing Society demands that we dedicate ourselves to training for leadership, to organize for growth, to mobilize for change and to educate for power. It is critical that we now inspire each other, restore our hope, draw strength from our experiences and our past, celebrate our victories both great and small, hold ourselves accountable though continuous evaluation and always remember that our Society and Nation are a better place because We are here.
OUR YOUTH COUNCIL
The Southwest Region created a Youth Council, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren of our membership. The mission of the council is to learn the history of organized labor and share the story with their counterparts.
