4/26 UCB Labor Forum, Privatization, Union Busting, Labor And International May Day

Working people and the unions face major attacks on May Day 2019. There are efforts to bust unions throughout the country and the world and also there is a wave of privatization and outsourcing threatening all jobs. UC is outsourcing thousands of jobs and the corporatization and privatization of all public education including charters is escalating. There also vicious racist attacks on immigrants, Blacks and Latinos and the rise of fascism. Working people and our unions need to get organized to fight back and defend our communities which also face massive gentrification.
This forum will look at the attacks on public workers including teachers, workers at Highland Hospital, farmworkers and a report on the working class struggle in Venezuela.
