These are tumultuous times for workers and for unions. There has never been a greater need for union members to educate themselves and forge a new strategy to go forward. Participants in this two-day program will learn about and discuss the lessons of labor’s past that can help us formulate a path to advance workers’ rights and to build dynamic unions.
Topics include: overview of labor and working class history and its lessons for today’s labor movement, a discussion of unions and people of color, a conversation about women in the labor movement, and a dialogue about labor and politics.
