CLEAT gets 'solidarity' award for killing anti-union bill




CLEAT was recognized last week for its successful efforts to help defeat legislation that would have destroyed the legal-defense payroll deduction of teachers and other public workers in Texas.

Although the bill exempted law enforcement, CLEAT took a hard-line position against the measure.

"It's an honor to be recognized by the Texas AFL CIO," said CLEAT President Todd Harrison. "CLEAT is a bipartisan organization and we value our relationships with other organizations that represent Texas working folks."

Accepting the Award for "Solidarity" from the Texas AFL-CIO was CLEAT Executive Director Charley Wilkison,  center in the photo above. At left is newly elected president John Patrick and outgoing President Becky Moeller is at the right.
