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."
