PROSECTUS
Of TIM
NATIONAL LABOR UNION
u are us of o sam a-r.
OF THE UNITED MTAT= OF AMERICA.
JMo'e-eWzens and Workingmes
of the United &ake:
The question of the hour is, How can the
workingman best improve his condition? This
question is not only being agitated in the United
States, but throughout the civilized world. The
universal law of our exitence is, "In the sweat
of thy face thou shall eat thy bread." We desire
to impress yon with this fact, that it is a Divine
law, that we must labor, and that the comforts
of life can only be attained by honest, patient
aril.
It should be the aim of every man to become
a capitalist; that is, every man should try and
receive an exchange for his labor, which, by
proper economy and investment, will, in the
future, place him in the position of those on
whom he is now dependent for a living. At least
it should be your aspiration to become the owner
of your own homestead, and place that homestead
beyond the reach of want and poverty. As work
ingmen we can only possess these blessings by
being industrious with our brains and bands,
temperate in our habits, and economical with
our means.
It is the duty of our National Labor Union,
and more particularly the Bureauoflaborereat
ed by your delegates assembled from nearly every
state in the Union, to advise with you upon the
best and most speedy means to better your con
dition in the United States.
We look with painful emotion upon the pre
sent condition of colored labor in the several
States. Disorganized, poorly paid, assaulted,
and, in many cases, totally in diferent to its own
welfare. After a careful survey and consideration
of this vital question, in which we have consult
ed the wisdom and experience of the most pro
found economists and labor reformers of our
times
We advise you, 1st, to immediately organize,
because labor can only protect itself when or
ganized; that is, by being organized thoroughly,
you have the command of capital. You receive
better pay~for your labor. You learn where and
how to invest your labor to better advantage.
You learn the value of the capital invested with
your labor-how to respect that capital, and
make that capital respect your labor. You learn
where and how to create employment, to give
yourselves work when you are debarred by op
posite combinations. You learn the wants of
your fellow-workmen and how to provide for
them.
In a word, without organization, you stand in
danger of being exterminated. You cannot ex
pect to be profitably employed, and the trades
will soon die out in the race. With organization
you will find employment, you will force op
posite combinations to recognize your claims to
work without restriction because of our color,
and opon the way for your children to learn trades
and move forward in the enjoyment of all the
rights of American citizenship. How shall you
organize? We answer call a general meeting of
the workingmen in every city and town, and at
ter discussing the importance of organization,ap
point a committee of one from each branch of
trade or labor represented, to prepare a plan
for organization. When they have roported a
plan, then appoint your committee on constitu
tion and permanent organization. When they
report, proceed immediately to form yourselves
into an association, send a copy of your constitu
tions and list of officers to the Bureau of Labor,
and get your charter. We would advise, where
there is a sufficient number of any particular
branch, that they orgonize separate associations.
As each man desires to follow that business for
which he has been educated. Asa constitution fcr
the government of a carpenters' association
will not suit for the government of a laborers' as
sociation, it is important that you organize each
branch separately. Five men of any one branch
organized, can accomplish more in the interest
of that particular branch, than being asseciated
with fie hundred men of several branches.
Mixed organizations have always proved disas
trous to the labor reform movement, except in
delegated bodies. The above organizations re
ferred to, are simple organizations for the pro
tection of labor and wages.
We would call your attention fo, and advise,
and that you form yourselves into co-opgeratve
Trade Unions. While these are the most benea
cial associations of modern times, they require
much judgment. and intellectual ability to make
them a succo..i Theyaseem to be azecesslty at
ahis time in order to furnish employmemt th col
ored men in many States in the Union. We
could not furnish a general plan of organization.
Each particular association must be governed by
special rujes. We can only advise you how to
organize, when you inform the Burena what yen
propose organizing. We can butasy the general
princile Is, for each man to take agven amount
ofatcand aythatin weekly or monthly in
stallmentaus thyhave enough to comemence
business with, so taby a combhination efthsir
money and labor, thywill from a capital and
business that will ~Iethem an independent liv
of theireterrelations. Let any man who will,
take an interest with 7eu.
3. We should advise youtoorganize Bidn
and land Associations. These em asiyb
established in connection with your "Tns n
Labor Uninns," and will hav, a tendeneyto
strengthen and -eptet them. Uxpaeaece
