“L.A. unions and people who need them meet face to face”

LA Country Federation of Labor details the Labor Immigrant Assistance Program and the California Immigrant Workers Association.

Following the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986, Los Angeles unions became more involved in recruiting immigrant workers. An article in the L.A. County Federation of Labor Newsletter profiles the Labor Immigrant Assistance Project (LIAP) and the California Immigrant Workers Association (CIWA), both efforts by the labor movement to reach out to new immigrants.
