Building Bridges to Peace - A National Labor Network for Ceasefire webinar

The viewpoints expressed by individual speakers in this webinar belong solely to those individuals and do not necessarily reflect the opinions or beliefs of the National Labor Network For Ceasefire or the other individuals participating in this webinar.

Working people around the world have mourned the tragic loss of life in Israel and Palestine since Hamas’s brutal attack in Israel on October 7, 2023. As trade unionists, we stand in solidarity with workers everywhere, and join in movements leading towards a just and peaceful world, which upholds our values of democracy, equality and the respect for human and labor rights.

The ongoing tragedy in Israel and Gaza makes the prospects of a just and peaceful world more remote.

Our unions are united in our call for a ceasefire in Gaza. To achieve a just and lasting peace, the bombing must stop, the hostages must be released, and the humanitarian aid that is so needed in Gaza must be realized.

Together, we have formed the National Labor Network for a Ceasefire. We stand for peace, justice, and a better future for working people everywhere.

Our unions are made up of educators and electric workers, tradespeople and transportation workers, autoworkers and flight attendants, nurses and care workers, postal workers and public servants, and many more.

American unions which have called for a ceasefire now represent the majority of the organized labor movement.

The National Labor Network for a Ceasefire will continue to organize among the labor movement to increase the size and volume of that call.

National Labor Network for Ceasefire Members include:

American Postal Workers Union (APWU) – Association of Flight Attendants (AFA-CWA) National Nurses United (NNU) – International Union of Painters and Allied Trades (IUPAT) – National Education Association (NEA) – United Auto Workers (UAW) – United Electrical Workers (UE)
