The ivory tower of academia does not protect its workers. Across the country, austerity politics are bleeding colleges and universities dry, opening the door for the corporate takeover of higher education. But, like their colleagues in elementary and secondary education, higher education workers are fighting back.
Join Labor Notes staff member Barbara Madeloni on Tuesday, May 7 at 8:00 p.m. EST for a video webinar during which we will hear from students, faculty, and staff about how they are organizing for power and winning on campuses across the country. »
Conversations with Troublemakers: Organizing for the Common Good
The strike is back! More workers walked off the job last year than any year since 1986. Teachers and nurses are at the forefront of this upsurge, and they're using their workplace leverage to advocate not only for themselves, but also for their patients, their students, and the public. Join Labor Notes organizer Chris Brooks as we discuss how winning a better world requires collective action on the job.
Online registration is now closed, but it's not too late to attend the Troublemakers School! Just show up by 9 a.m. to register at the door.
