The Bay Area is one of the most beautiful places in the world and LaborFest celebrates this beauty with a labor maritime boat trip on the bay with an ILWU-IBU/MMP crew. We will enjoy labor music and dinner as we learn about the real lives of working people.
We will hear about the San Francisco General Strike, Maritime Strike, and how unions built the city. We will hear labor process photographer Joseph Blum talk about the building of the Eastern Span of the Bay Bridge, and historian Harvey Smith talk about the history of the WPA and how it shaped the Bay Area. There will be speakers about ongoing union struggles for worker rights and what we can do to support these workers. We will also have labor music from the US and around the world. You can’t afford to miss this great time on the bay.
