Union comes out in support of ENDA executive order

From Chris Johnson at the Blade:

A labor union that bills itself as an organization for “rank and file” workers adopted a pro-LGBT resolution at a recent convention that includes an endorsement for an executive order protecting LGBT people against workplace discrimination.

The United Electrical, Radio and Machine Workers of America last week approved the resolution on the need to end anti-LGBT discrimination at its 72nd national convention in Pittsburgh, Pa.

The two-page resolution, titled “End Discrimination Based on Sexual Orientation,” says the “most powerful weapon in the bosses’ arsenal is divide and conquer” and workers are strongest when they’re united, including on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.
