Organized labor in the US may intensify its support for Solidarity, if that independent Polish labor union becomes the target of a government crackdown. As the Communist Party Congress was breaking up in Moscow this week, Polish leaders were told that the free trade union movement must be brought to heel.

But, according to AFL-CIO officials, neither Soviet propaganda attacks nor Us State Department "emanations" -- such as came from the Carter administration -- will stop the federation's worldwide efforts to promote free workers' movements.

AFL-CIO members have contributed more than $200,000 to supply typewriters, duplicating machines, office supplies, a van, and other equipment to reinforce the Polish workers' fight for union rights. Money is still being collected. And "Solidarity" T-shirts are much in evidence around union halls in the US.
