Organizers' workshop ("Troublemakers School")

We are beset by onerous workplaces, undemocratic unions and politicians that do not heed the full wishes of the people. It is always helpful to build one's skills by listening to the words of more experienced organizers.

This current economic crisis and the stalling by some Democratic politicians against redistributive change (e.g., New York's Governor David Paterson) make activism all the more urgent.

Saturday, March 21, Labor Notes, the labor magazine oriented towards addressing autonomous (i.e., bottom-up, workplace-based) union activism, is hosting a "Troublemakers School" in New York City, at the Murphy Institute, 25 W 43rd Street, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM.

The opening session theme is "The Economic Crisis and Working New Yorkers."
