2014 Labor Notes Conference, April 4-6 in Chicago
Event at a Glance
What do Hong Kong dockworkers, Indian auto workers, Mexican teachers, and Argentinean subway workers have in common? They’ll all be at the Labor Notes Conference in Chicago, and so should you.
Excitement is building as guests from around the world plan to join ATU bus drivers, New York nurses, Portland pipefitters, California university workers, Chicago fast food strikers, and teachers, postal workers, and telecom workers from all over.
More than 100 meetings and workshops include secrets of a successful organizer, beating apathy, running for local union office, inside campaigns, assertive grievance handling, bargaining over technology, understanding the economy, creative tactics, and winning contract campaigns.
Learn how some unions are working with communities to fight privatization, tax the rich, run ballot initiatives, bargain around the ACA health care reform, organize without collective bargaining rights, and organize along the global supply chain.
Organize with others in your union, industry, or campaign. Face-to-face meetings to share tactics and swap notes are the heart of the Labor Notes Conference. Join an existing industry, union, or caucus meeting—or contact us to set one up.
Union and industry meetings include:
- Postal workers
- Food workers
- Graduate employees
Join us at the Crowne Plaza hotel, near Chicago's O’Hare Airport. Workshops and meetings begin 1 p.m. Friday, April 4, and end at 2 p.m. Sunday, April 6.
