Throughout the years women have been imprisoned and fired from their jobs due to union activity. The struggle for women unionists has been difficult and the struggle is by no means over. Even today women lag in representation in unions and still are clustered in low- paying, low-status occupations. In the early 1970's the women's movement gave labor union women the incentive to better their situation both in the workplace and in the unions themselves. The product of this new consciousness is the women's labor organization called The Coalition of Labor Union Women (CLUW).
