2017. End the U.S. Blockade Against Cuba. The San Francisco Labor Council
for Peace, Justice and Dignity
San Francisco Labor Council Adopts a Resolution by Unanimous Vote
the U.S. Blockade Against Cuba
We welcome this resolution by the San
Francisco Labor Council as it joins a growing number of cities, states
and other organizations that are condemning the cruel and illegal
blockade of Cuba. This resolution adds considerable weight to the
struggle against Trump's recent reactionary step backwards in the process
towards normalization between the two countries. The San Francisco Labor
Council represents 100,000 workers in 150 AFL-CIO and Change to Win labor
unions in San Francisco.
Resolution to End the U.S. blockade against Cuba
Whereas, the San Francisco Labor Council has gone on record
calling for an end to the U.S. blockade, travel ban and trade embargo
against Cuba since July 26, 1993, and along with other labor unions,
supported the many successful challenges to the blockade by grassroots
organizations including the Pastors for Peace Friendshipment caravans to
Whereas, the arguments stated in the Council's 1993
resolution still hold true, namely that the blockade is not only harmful
to Cuba's workers and citizens, but "restricts our freedom to
travel, and ending it will create jobs for U.S. workers"; and
Whereas, following the Obama administration's partial moves
to normalize U.S.-Cuban relations, now the Trump administration has
expressed its intention to reverse this trend and tighten the blockade of
Cuba once again.
Therefore be it resolved, that the San Francisco Labor Council
reaffirm its support for ending the trade embargo, travel restrictions
and all aspects of the U.S. blockade against Cuba, and oppose efforts by
the Trump administration to tighten the blockade; and
Be it finally resolved, that the Council send this
resolution to its affiliates, area Labor Councils, the California Labor
Federation, Change to Win, and to the AFL-CIO, urging concurrence -
including by formally submitting this resolution to the 2017 AFL-CIO
convention and the 2018 convention of the California Labor Federation.
