Roofers Local 36 Affiliates with the WFTU!
The United Union of Roofers, Waterproofers, and Allied Workers Local 36 became the first U.S. Trade Union to affiliate with the World Federation of Trade Unions (WFTU) since 1949 at the recently concluded World Trade Union Congress in Durban South Africa. The last American union affiliate to the WFTU was the Amalgamated Clothing Workers. This is a very significant development for organized labor in this country.
Founded in 1945 in Paris, France the WFTU is the original worldwide trade union federation representing 92 million workers in all corners of the globe. World Congresses are held every five (5) years, and the work of the WFTU is coordinated by the elected Secretariat and President's Council. For more information, write to:
