Scarcely a day passes without public workers being blamed for the nation’s economic woes. But how is it possible that your local hard-working teacher, librarian, or garbage collector is such a menace to society? Hear firsthand reports from recent Bay Area labor struggles to preserve and extend public services—from transportation to schools, parks, hospitals and civic resources. Bring your ideas about how to successfully counter union-busting, anti-government zealots and their agenda: privatized services, universally low wages, and astronomic profits.

Also get updates on the fight to save City College of SF, and learn how you can help support the June-September $100,000 Freedom Socialist fund drive. The meeting is free and open to all; sponsored by Bay Area FSP. Lunch is served at 12:15pm ($8 donation requested for lunch).
