Union & Community Organizing Training


The United Mine Workers of America (UMWA) training for community activist and union members to volunteer to join them in their organizing campaigns is coming to Columbia. This is a chance to make good jobs and a voice in the workplace a community project.  

Many of you have signed up for the training which will take place on Wednesday, May 23 and repeated on Thursday, May 24, 6-7:30 pm at the Modjeska Simkins House, 2025 Marion Street, Columbia.

There are a few things we need from those who will be attending:
  • Please indicate which night you will be attending if you have not done so. 
  • Please advise us on what size t-shirt you will need.
  • Please rsvp by phone (803-926-8680) or email (scaflcio@bellsouth.net) if you have not done so.      (Many of you have made verbal commitments, but we don't want to overlook anyone in preparing materials.) 
As president of the SC AFL-CIO for the last sixteen years, it has been a goal to have commitment from organized labor to invest in opportunities for workers to have a right to join a union and have a voice on issues impacting their work environment. Please join me in thanking UMWA for making an investment in SC workers. You can show them you really want to help by volunteering for the training and helping with the campaigns. 

I look forward to seeing you on May 23 or May 24 !

Donna Dewitt
President, South Carolina AFL-CIO
