Wyoming State AFL-CIO

Grace Carrol Rocky Mountain Labor School

Mission Statement

The GraceCarrollRockyMountainLaborSchool is operated by a Board of Control consisting of the Executive Officer of each of the eight RockyMountainState Central Bodies affiliated with the AFL-CIO. It has been officially endorsed by these state organizations.
 
The purposes of the school are:
  1. To provide information and training for officers of State Central Bodies, and Local Union members so that they may make their organizations more effective instruments for the promotion of the cause of organized labor.
  2. To work out plans for establishment of programs of workers' education in the various states and cities so that the members of our unions will understand the functions of organized labor and be able to contribute more to the building of a sound and strong trade union movement in the Rocky Mountain and surrounding areas.
 Instructors:
  • The school traditionally has top staff personnel leaders with a vast amount of experience in the trade union movement. The 2009 Grace Carroll Rocky Mountain Labor School program will focus on the labor movement’s dedication to building strong Union membership and will provide workshops that will deal with appropriate subjects in these areas.
