 AFL-CIO HONORS FIVE CITIES FOR COMMUNITY SERVICES WORK
 ATLANTA, June 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Five cities were honored today by


the AFL-CIO as 1992 Model Cities in Community Service in recognition of outstanding health and human services programs developed by local unions, volunteer agencies and their local United Ways.
 The awards were presented at the 30th National AFL-CIO Conference on Community Services concluding today.
 Model cities for 1992 are:
 -- San Jose, Calif. (Western Region)
 -- Monroe, Mich. (Mid-America Region)
 -- Tulsa, Okla. (South Central Region)
 -- Bethlehem, Pa. (Northeast Region)
 -- Knoxville, Tenn. (Southeast Region)
 AFL-CIO Community Services Director Joe Velasquez said the programs in the five communities embody the best traditions of unions joining with United Way in a cooperative effort to help with local problems.
 "Each of these communities can serve as a model for the rest of the nation on how volunteer agencies, the United Way and unions work together for the betterment of all the residents," Velasquez said.
 The model cities were selected on the basis of a detailed survey of their volunteer programs, and each was presented with a certificate and a sign suitable for display on a highway entering the city.
 Honored with the cities were local AFL-CIO central labor councils and the local United Way chapters involved.
