Union Members Are Community Members
Gray, David
American Educator, v36 n4 p22-26 Win 2012-2013

A local union president has found that his members are best served by participating in a community-wide coalition. Providing eyeglasses to needy students, promoting healthy eating, and increasing voter registration are just a few of the important issues they have tackled together.
