Other union resources
The following local organizations may be good resources for your women’s committee:
- Your AFSCME council and area office
- Coalition of Labor Union Women (CLUW) chapter
- State labor council
- Community colleges and other adult education facilities
- College and university labor studies programs (Their services, however, are not always available without charge so it is best to check first on free programs from the International or council.)

- Public libraries.
