Title: Public Forum: Save Our Unions: Dispatches from a Movement in Distress
START DATE: Thursday July 24
TIME: 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Location Details:
Unitarian Universalist Center
1187 Franklin Street, San Francisco
Martin Luther King Room
Event Type: Speaker
A labor journalist who writes from a fundamental commitment to the labor movement, Steve Early draws on forty years of personal experience for his new writing collection, Save Our Unions. The book visits strikes and picket-lines, conventions and funerals – all in the course of describing the challenges American workers face trying to organize a union, or democratize one, or negotiate a contract – while trying not to lose what they had in the past.
Ranging through strategies for organizing, health care reform, cross-border union campaigning, or politics less dependent on the Democratic Party, Early continually raises the question of what labor can do and should do in 2014.

Sponsored by Progressive Democrats of America San Francisco and Unitarian Universalists for Peace & Justice San Francisco

Sponsored by "Progressive Democrats" means that it is being promoted by Democrats! These are the folks that gave you NAFTA, Charter Schools, Obamacare, escalation of wars in Afghanistan, expanded spying on all Americans, increasing of the prison population, etc., etc.. Without a complete break from the parties of capitalism i.e. Democrat, Republican, Green, etc., the working class and the overwhelming masses of this country, will not move forward but be further oppressed. This guy is trying to sell a book and the "Progressive Democrats" are trying to sell you a another bag of you know what.
