SOLIDARITY: A CORE VALUE AND PRACTICE OF THE LABOR MOVEMENT

 


The PSC is committed to solidarity, a core value and practice of the labor movement. Solidarity means support for working people in their labor unions, community organizations, and coalitions around specific, vital interests (e.g. housing, health care, environment).

Solidarity work builds the power of the PSC. As we participate in the struggles of co-workers, neighbors, students and engaged citizens, we establish working relations which can be called upon for our own campaign (e.g. contract, budget, organizing).

The PSC has a strong focus on union strength through member participation. Our members already have ties and involvement in labor, community, political, and civic organizations. We want to tap into and draw on these already established relations, to connect PSC work and our members interests, connections, and resources.

The Solidarity Committee meets monthly (see calendar). Co-chairs are Penny Lewis, Jim Perlstein, and John Hyland. Alex Vitale is the Committee’s representative to the PSC’s Committee of Committees. Join us. For further information, contact Jim Perlstein at jperlstein@aol.com or the PSC office.
