We will also host a Peace & Freedom Party Labor Forum on The Recall, Labor And Democracy 2003 Northern California Peace And Freedom Party Labor Conference The New Labor Fightback/ Time For Workers Democracy & Unions That Fight The Bosses Sunday September 21, 2003 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM Fellowship Of Humanities 390 27th St./Broadway Oakland, CA $10 For Conference $12 includes lunch (no one turned away due to lack of funds) California workers are under attack. Gray Davis has cut the wages and benefits of tens of thousands of public workers and the response to the Republicans by the Democrats is to attack education, housing, healthcare and social services. Working people need a political alternative to the corporate controlled Democrats and Republicans and that means that we need democratic unions where the rank and file control their political funds and have a vote on where these funds are spent. We also need a democratic trade union movement with the principle of one person, one vote and the direct election of all the officers from business agents and all local officers to all international officials and the leadership of the AFL-CIO. Our union leadership is in bed with the Democratic party and this is an albatross on our ability to fight back and defend our unions. Join rank and file unionists from many unions inside the AFL-CIO and outside, when we discuss and plan to to go on the offensive to defend our unions, our rights and our lives. All workers are welcome to participate. 9:00 AM Registration 9:30 AM Introductions 10:00 AM Issues (continued after lunch) Workers Rights Health And Safety Lunch Sasetru Obrero, Sasetru Belongs to the Workers, video from Argentina with presentation by Adam Richmond 1:00 PM Issues (continued) Immigrant Rights War & Repression Democracy & Our Unions Partial List of Speakers and others to be announced!
