Alice Ip and other workers involved in the 1982 ILGWU strike also joined APALA (the Asian-Pacific American Labor Alliance), and went to Washington D.C. to “fight [for] the worker’s right.” There continue to be former ILGWU Local 23-25 members active in CLUW (the Collation of Labor Union Women) and active in APALA; “we still keep [in] tight contact– anytime they call, like today, we come.”
