About the Emergency Labor Network

See on Scoop.itMapping Social Network Unionism Worldwide

The Emergency Labor Network (ELN) is a network of labor organizations and individuals united in support of a program calling upon labor to wage a more militant and robust fightback against the many assaults targeting working people. We say “NO!” to cuts and concessions for workers in both the private and public sectors, as well as for Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. We are guided by the 15 principles adopted at our founding meeting held in Cleveland March 4–5, 2011. We not only seek to protect the gains and achievements won by labor over centuries of struggle but we also urge the labor movement to break new ground in winning jobs for all; health care for all; quality education for our youth; full rights for all working people in the U.S., regardless of country of origin; organizing the South; independent labor political action; and redirecting war spending to meet human needs, including modernizing the crumbling infrastructure.
