An outreach to associates and members of the ECCLC.
Abstract: This newsletter provides an outreach to associates and members of the Edmonton Cross-Cultural Learner Centre. The February issue features an article on trade union opposition to "apartheid" in South Africa. A telephone survey taken by the Learner Centre found that key union leaders in the Edmonton area have endorsed a national move by the Canadian Labour Congress to fight apartheid in South Africa. This movement which involves building a "massive fund" to support black unions in their daily struggle against oppression was conceived by the Internatinal Confederation of Free Trade Unions (ICFTU) and it is expected that various unions throughout the world will join in. Ann Boronyk, president of the Edmonton and District Labour Council, said that a memo to over 60 organizations had been drafted seeking futher support. She also said that the labour council, which represents between fifty and sixty thousand Edmonton area residents, is in the process of developing a public education campaign in South Africa. The Council also urged its members to boycott materials from South Africa that are produced as a result of exploitative conditions.
