Isn’t it time to fight back?
This reading and discussion series is an instrument for doing just that. Participants look at past achievements and failures, traditions and innovations, to understand how workers got where we are today — and how to move forward.
Session 5, Wednesday, 7/13: “Not Your Grandfather's Movement: Beyond "Bread & Butter" Issues and Traditional Unions.”
This week's discussion will look at the need for the labor movement to address societal issues and the fight for workers not typically represented by unions. Specific examples include programs like affirmative action and forming community groups and organizations like worker centers to support non-unionized labor. Such efforts are crucial to building broad working-class solidarity.
