This workshop will be held on Tuesday, November 7, and will run from 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. Eastern Time (4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. Pacific). This is an online workshop and will be held via Zoom.

If you’re a union member, unfortunately the chances are good that you’ve had, or will have, your heart broken at least once by one of your own leaders. Whether you tried to get involved and there was nowhere to go, or the members got sold out, or leaders want to keep the union as their exclusive club, it can feel pretty harsh. In this workshop, we’ll talk about how to recommit to your union and change the culture into one where leaders respect and serve the members.

This workshop is based on this article and will be led by Labor Notes board member Ellen David Friedman.

This workshop will be offered on a monthly basis; if you cannot make it to this session stay tuned for next month's event.
