September 27, 2016: The Missouri AFL-CIO Convention Delegates unanimously passed Resolution #26 today honoring CWA Member and CLUW Sister Chere Chaney with a Lifetime Achievement Award posthumously.
Whereas; working families have been under attack for several years in Missouri, and
Whereas; organized labor has led the fight to remove politicians who subscribe to these attacks, and
Whereas; many of our members rise to the challenge in each legislative session and election cycle to lead fights by volunteering for door to door walks, phone banking, fundraising efforts and many other aspects that these members are singled out as a "Super Volunteer", and
Whereas; such dedication should be given proper recognition to individuals who consistently exemplify these outstanding qualities, now
Therefore be it resolved; that the Missouri AFL-CIO shall continue to recognize such individuals volunteers by presenting to them what shall be known as the Chere Chaney Award.
Visitation will start at 1:00 PM till 2:30 PM, Funeral Services will begin at 2:30 PM.
