United Statesoin Labor Notes and labor activists from around the Bay Area for a Troublemaker's Institute Saturday, April 28 in San Jose, California.
We’re inviting union and non-union workers young and old to join us for a day of workshops, main sessions, and breakout meetings aimed at strengthening the labor movement one worker at a time. Past Troublemaker’s trainings have helped strengthen unions with steward’s trainings, classes dealing with racism and sexism, and contract campaign strategy. They’re a great opportunity to get new members involved, or just hone your skills.
