(en) US, IWW* Seattle, workplace organizer training: feb 18th & 19th

Date Tue, 14 Feb 2006 10:59:33 +0200

Cascade People's Center 309 Pontius Ave. N. Seattle, WA, 98109
Saturday the 18th and Sunday the 19th 10:00 am to 4:00 pm both days
(Registration begins at 9:30am on Saturday the 18th)
Organizing in the workplace for justice is only one of many steps to be
taken towards a better world. However, as multi-national corporations and
U.S. labor law continue to work hand in hand against workers, the U.S. labor
movement has taken many steps backwards. Today, workplace organizing falls
dramatically short of the needs of workers in many industries.
Our union wants to see this change. We believe in building solidarity,
democracy, and workers power on the job. This is why we are hosting an
organizer training on February 18th and 19th, to empower a new generation of
workers with the skills necessary to organize on the job. For us, this is
the path to building a new alternative on the shop floor against corporate
greed and injustice.

Trainers will include Tomer of the NYC Starbucks Workers Union, Harjit of
the Bay Area IWW, and members of the Portland IWW. The first day will cover
building organizing campaigns and overall organizing strategy. The second
day will cover the nuts and bolts of workplace organizing, shop mapping,
talking union to co-workers, ect.

For an Itinerary and a Pre-registration form, get a hold of the IWW at one
