The AFL-CIO Bonnie Ladin Union Skills Training Program (BLUS) is offering Organizing I, April 25-29, at the Conference Center at the Maritime Institute in Linthicum, MD. “The class helped me to become a more prepared organizer utilizing the most advanced tools and techniques,” said one participant. "Organizing I is an ideal course for staff new to organizing, as well as those who want to learn more about the latest strategies to grow their union," says Jean Dearden, BLUS Coordinator. Participants will examine a typical local union campaign from start to finish, focusing on one-on-one communication, developing workplace committees, and planning skills.
