The Greater Boston Chapter of the Coalition of Labor Union Women (CLUW) began forming shortly after the creation of the national organization on March 12, 1974. Early in the chapter's formation there were differences in opinion between radical and more moderate members. Members differed on the topics of the chapter’s priorities, membership requirements, and the relationship between the regional chapters and the national organization. This chapter focused on topics of affirmative action, the Equal Rights Amendment, desegregation, and the rights of immigrants and undocumented workers among others.
