Detroiters are planning a day of skill-building workshops, education, and strategy discussions to put some movement back in the labor movement. The goal is to help workers get active in resisting management attacks—in other words, to make “good trouble.” The school will be a great opportunity for union members and other workplace activists to share strategies and build the solidarity required in these tough times. Workshop materials and plentiful snacks are included with cost of registration. WHEN: Saturday, November 20, 1pm-6pm »
This is the second in a series of on-line workshops for higher education workers about how to organize around campus debt. In our first session, Campus Debt: Debunking Myths and Organizing for Action, we saw how campus debt damages our higher education institutions, adds to student debt, and shapes our institutions to the needs of Wall Street not the public good. As one participant noted, they had not before thought through the power relationships entailed in debt. And we began to explore how to undo some of the myths that surround debt and limit our imagination and demands. »

Student debt is only one of the crises facing higher education. Under the myth of austerity, public higher education has been underfunded and driven to take on debt. Debt now constitutes significant portions of campus budgets, and debt-serving fees cost students thousands of dollars a year and deprive them and campus workers of the funds they need. Join Labor Notes and members of the Public Higher Education Workers network as we expose how campus debt undermines our campuses. Develop the skills and strategies to organize to end campus debt. »
