With budget cuts, union-busting, privatization, and corporate outsourcing schemes wreaking havoc on working people in the DC metro area, who ya gonna call? The Troublemakers School! Former Metro Council Assistant Mobilizer Julia Kann – now with Labor Notes – reports that “local labor activists are planning a day of skill-building workshops, education, and strategy discussions to strengthen the local labor movement with rank-and-file worker power!”
The DC-Area Troublemakers School is scheduled for Saturday, November 15 from 8am to 4pm at Foundry United Methodist Church. $20 registration but no one turned away for lack of funds. Click here to register now.
“The first-ever DC-Area Troublemakers School will be a great opportunity for union members, stewards, and community activists to share strategies and build the solidarity needed for the struggles ahead,” says Kann. Labor Notes is organizing the event.
Workshops and panels will include: How to Talk to your Coworkers about the Union; Fighting Privatization; Community-Labor Alliances; Beating Apathy; Getting Off the Grievance Treadmill; Minority Unionism.
