A. Philip Randolph Honored by the House of Representatives

A resolution was recently introduced in congress that A. Philip Randolph should be recognized for his lifelong leadership and work to end discrimination and secure equal employment and labor opportunities for all Americans.

Randolph championed civil rights with the Pullman Porters and obtained the AFL charter for the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters. The Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters merged with TCU in 1978 and is the reason for TCU’s membership in the Amtrak On-Board Service Workers Council.

“TCU applauds the members of the House in taking this step,” said TCU International President Bob Scardelletti “Having the Porters’ legacy continue in our union today is a great source of pride and harmony. The struggles and triumphs A. Philip Randolph worked to achieve should be celebrated and remembered by everyone.”
