Subject: United Blind Industrial workers of America


My fellow federationists,
It is my honor to have been elected as the chairman of the steering
committee for the newly reconstituted United Blind Industrial workers of
America. We will work together to eliminate all subminimum wage payments on
the basis of disability, ensure equal opportunities for advancement for all
blind workers, provide adequate training to blind workers in sheltered
environments who are seeking mainstream employment, and defend the rights of
blind workers who are abused by those who claim to be their protectors.
As of now, the UBIWA is in its earliest stages, and we are looking for
members to give of their time, talent, and eventually treasure to make this
developing division of the federation one of our strongest. Join the mailing
list by sending a blank message to workers-subscribe at ubiwa.org or visit our
website at http://www.ubiwa.org to keep up with developments as they occur.
On behalf of the committee I offer our thanks to the merchants division, the
federation as a whole, Blind Industries and services of Maryland, and the
lawyers division for their generous contributions which will make this
organization possible.
