Fr. Sean McManus—President of the Capital Hill-based Irish National Caucus—has had a very long on-going association with American Labor. He founded the Irish National Caucus on February 6, 1974. In February 1975, the Executive council of the AFL-CIO invited him to Bal Harbour, FL, to brief them on the Irish Issue. The Executive Council endorsed the Irish National Caucus. Then about ten years later, the Executive Council invited Fr. McManus to brief them on the Mac Bridge Principles—a corporate code of conduct for American companies doing business in Northern Ireland. The AFL-CIO became the first significant group to endorse the Mac Bride Principles.
