If labor movement had listened then, the people would be thriving today

Pres, Al Phillips headed local union for Health Dept., now privatized

(VOD: the resolution below was brought by AFSCME Local 457 delegates to the AFSCME International Convention in 1992. It warned then that the union movement needed to take up the battle against the banks. A resolution against privatization which included the same call for a debt moratorium was passed by the AFSCME Presidents representing Detroit locals on April 15, 1994. The anniversary of Local 457 Pres. Al Phillips’ death the following day, April 16, 1994, is now approaching. It is long past time for a mass movement of working and poor people to overturn the power of the banks.)
