    AFL-CIO Unions add protections for transgender workers to its constitution

    transitiontransmission:

    The AFL-CIO, the largest federation of unions in the United States, amended its constitution Monday to ban discrimination on the basis of gender identity or gender expression.

    The American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations, comprised of more than 50 national and international unions representing more than 12 million workers, voted in favor of the provision during its 2013 convention being held this week in Los Angeles.

    The amendment was introduced by the Communications Workers of America (CWA), and co-sponsored by UNITE HERE, a labor union representing hotel, food service, casino and hospitality workers.

    Pride at Work, the LGBT organization within the AFL-CIO that campaigned for the amendment, hailed the decision as “a great day in our movement.”

    The updated amendment reads: “To encourage all workers without regard to race, creed, color, sex, national origin, religion, disability, [or] sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression to share equally in the full benefits of union organization.”

    TW: Hate crimes, murder

    A 22-year-old man from the Bronx has been charged with second-degree murder as a hate crime for stabbing another man under a train station yesterday afternoon.

    Witnesses say that 69-year-old Edward Orozco was “blowing kisses” at 22-year-old Steven Torres around 1:30pm on Monday. Torres reportedly got angry and attacked the man with an eight-inch knife, fatally stabbing him. The men didn’t know each other. 

    Torres led Good Samaritans on a chase through the neighborhood before police caught up to him.

    The assailant reportedly said nothing as he brutalized his victim, but laughed when he was finally caught.

    "He was laughing, yes," Lobaton said. "He was laughing like nothing," Lobaton said.

    I feel sick.
