From South Carolina to Alaska and California to Vermont over 40 labor organizations have sent in resolutions calling on the AFL-CIO Convention to endorse HR 676, single payer healthcare legislation introduced by Congressman John Conyers (D-MI).

The AFL-CIO convention will meet in Pittsburgh September 13-17th. The deadline for resolutions to be received is August 14.

Resolutions can be emailed to resolutions-amendments@aflcio.org or, if that is not possible, send three copies by mail to the AFL-CIO secretary-treasurer at 815 16th St., N.W., Washington, D.C. 20006. To confirm receipt of your resolution, call (202) 637-3907.
