(en) US, NYC, FORUM: THE CRISIS IN THE LABOR MOVEMENT and ALTERNATIVE WORKER ORGANIZING

Date Sun, 12 Mar 2006 10:14:26 +0200


TUESDAY, MARCH 14, 2006 -- 7:30 p.m. Brecht Forum, 451 West Street (Westbeth)
Manhattan (between Bank and Bethune streets) (212-242-4201).
panelists from Workers Solidarity Alliance; Industrial Workers of the World
(IWW); Make the Road by Walking; Million Worker March
In cooperation with the Anarchist Forum, Workers Solidrity Alliance will present a
panel of rank and file labor group members who will describe their response to the
current crisis in the U.S. labor movement. This crisis is one in which the established
unions continue to decline in membership and the recent controversies in the official
labor movement have done little to show a new way forward. At the same time the power
of the workers on the job and in society in general continues to decrease.

The panel will also present alternative ways of worker organizing that can
restore the power of the labor movement. Recent experiences with immigrant
workers in Brooklyn, with the Starbucks organizing campaign and with rank-and-file
struggles among auto workers and in other sectors around the country have shown
that workers can organize wthout bureaucracy and as an
integral part of a sturggle within the community for justice and equity.
The panelists will draw on their recent experiences and place them in the larger
context of the needed changes in the labor movmenet today.

After the presentation the panel will have an extensive open discussion among themselves
and with the audience about the state of the labor movement and strategies for the
future.

Take an A, C, E, or L train to the 14th Street and 8th Avenue subway stop
