Layoffs. Concessions. Budget cuts. Corporate America has created the biggest crisis for workers in decades, and we are paying the price.

How do we protect what we have--and lay the foundation to fight for more? Led by exerienced labor educators and activists, our workshops will explore innovative strategies to fight back, and give you the hands-on skills to make it happen.

Two workshop tracks: Big Picture and Nuts and Bolts

Workshops Include:

  • Developing New Leaders
  • Organizing New Members
  • Vermont Politics: Seize the Moment?
  • Aggressive Grievance Handling
  • Contract Campaigns
  • Running for Local Union Office
  • Lessons from Labor History
