The Association for Union Democracy (AUD) is a pro-labor, nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing the principles and practices of democratic unionism in the North American labor movement. It is the premise of AUD that internal democracy makes unions stronger and better able to fight for the rights and interests of its members. AUD provides organizing, educational, and legal assistance to union members fighting for greater control of their unions. No other organization is dedicated solely to advancing the democratic rights of union members. AUD supports actions which strengthen the democratic process, promoting membership participation, free speech and fair elections, so that union members can transform and lead their unions and shape their direction and actions. When necessary, AUD refers union members to attorneys with union democracy expertise. AUD files amicus curiae briefs in key union democracy cases. Our intervention was decisive, for example, in establishing conditions for a fair and honest national election in the Teamsters union in 1991. To be truly free, the labor movement must guarantee certain freedoms to its members: the right of free speech on the union floor; free press - the right to distribute leaflets and papers to fellow union members without censorship; free assembly - the right to meet with fellow union members to discuss union affairs and form caucuses; fair elections with an honest count; fair trials before impartial trial committees. In short, union democracy means civil liberties for members inside their own unions. There is no effective substitute for strong, democratic unions to defend the standard of living, job safety, working conditions, and employee dignity.  And there is no substitute for internal union democracy to get rid of corruption and oust self-serving union officials. Unions were created to serve the interests of all their members. Only democratic unions can be depended upon to fulfill this purpose effectively.  Everyone who already belongs to a union or who needs one also needs union democracy.  But in addition, union democracy is so important to our whole society that unions are the only type of non-governmental organization for which Congress has found it essential to legislate democratic rights. In legislating for democratic unionism, Congress was not serving some narrow pressure group intent on special privileges. Rather, it recognized that a free, democratic labor movement is a distinguishing mark of a free nation; that for millions of members, democracy within their unions has an impact on their daily lives even greater than civic freedom in general; that only a union membership armed with democratic rights can end the looting of health benefits and pension funds; and that all Americans benefit from a clean, democratic labor movement.
