Workers' Group Has 500,000 Members


The third annual national convention of ecclesiastical assistants to ACL1 (Christian Associations of Italian Workingmen), has concluded its three-day meeting here. Some 200 priests, diocesan assistants from the whole of Italy, Sicily and Sardinia, attended the sessions.

Theme of the meeting was the intensification of the campaign for ACLI's objectives: improvement of workers' conditions and achievement of true social justice by means of advancing Catholic social teaching in the field of labour unionism.

The organisation, which was established in August, 1944, today numbers over half a million members. Services to them include nearly 400 technical training courses for vocational improvement, 132 co-operatives, a social assistance organisation called the Patronato, and various religious, cultural and recreational activities such as lectures, conferences, summer camps and travel projects.

More than 16,000 persons attended the 394 training courses which were conducted during 1948. Some of these courses are maintained for normally employed members and others for unemployed. The Ministry of Labour has recognised and subsidised courses given for the unemployed.
