2014 George Meany Award

The George Meany Award is a national recognition approved by the AFL-CIO Executive Council. It may be presented to any adult union member who has made a significant contribution to the youth of their community through Scouting. Each AFL-CIO city central labor council and each AFL-CIO state federation is permitted to give one award annually. The emphasis of this award is on the importance of being selective. There is no rule that the quota must be used every year. No honorary recognitions should be made. The purpose of this award is to recognize the recipient’s outstanding service to youth through the programs of the Boy Scouts of America.

If you have a member of your Trade Union that you would like to nominate for this award please download the George Meany Award Application by clicking here and returning the application to the Greater Kansas City AFL-CIO in care of Becky Capper or via Fax: 816.221.6256.

Labor Unions Still Matter

Recently the KC Star Magazine featured an interview of Greater Kansas City AFL-CIO President Pat "Duke" Dujakovich after being interviewed by KC Star reporter Cindy Hoedel and titled: President of Greater KC AFL-CIO says labor unions still matter.

Currently the Missouri Legislature is contemplating "Right to Work" and on its first vote by the Missouri House of Representatives the bill failed to have enough votes to make it out of the House and sent over to the Senate.  It is stalled with just 4 more weeks in this Legislative Session and no one is certain of what will happen if it comes back up for another vote.

Right to Work is wrong for Missouri and a recent report by the University of Missouri-Kansas City Economics Department warns about the overall financial burden it will bring to State and County governments by the lost of tax revenue due to lower wages.  Read the study by clicking here.

AT&T Staff & Member Discounts

From the office of Liz Shuler, Secretary-Treasurer AFL-CIO

In your key roles as leaders of our important State Feds and CLCs, you know better than anyone that buying union-made products and services is a great way to stand in unity with our brothers and sisters. Thankfully, there is a clear option to do just that in the often crowded world of mobile carriers. With 45,000 workersrepresented by the Communications Workers of America, AT&T is the only national unionized wireless provider and is the clear choice for union members, their families and for the union staff working to promote their interests.
In an effort to ensure that AT&T is the clear union choice for telecommunications services, CWA facilitated negotiations with AT&T, the AFL-CIO, and Union Plus to provide discounted wireless service for union offices, union staff, and most importantly, valued union members. In addition, through negotiated discounts with the AFL-CIO, AT&T also offers significant savings on local and long-distance, internet, video and web conferencing and other communications technology services for national, regional and local union offices.
