As we have seen again and again around the country, police unions shield their officers from accountability — and, on many occasions, actively facilitate officer misconduct. For a labor movement that professes a commitment to creating a just society, continuing to affiliate with police unions signifies cognitive dissonance at the highest level.
We will no longer tolerate the status quo.
who are we?
We are members of the labor movement committed to fighting racial and economic injustice. We unequivocally state that Black Lives Matter and commit ourselves to vanquishing anti-Black racism within the labor movement.
what do we want?
We call on the AFL-CIO to expel the International Union of Police Associations.
We call on AFL-CIO affiliates with partial law enforcement membership — such as CWA, AFSCME, AFGE, and a range of others — to terminate their relationships with unionized police and correctional officers.
