Description
Organized by the Queens College Labor Resource Center and New Labor Forum, "Labor at the Crossroads" aims to provoke thoughtful discussion and debate on the future of the labor movement. As the Bush administration enters its second term, the labor movement is in crisis. Though organizing has been the AFL-CIO’s top priority for a decade, 88 % of U.S. workers are unorganized and union membership continues to decline. At this critical juncture, union leaders are debating the merits of dramatic structural changes. Please join us to engage in this debate with speakers Bruce Raynor of UNITE HERE, Leo Gerard of United Steelworkers of America, Larry Cohen of Communication Workers of America, Kate Bronfenbrenner of Cornell University, Bill Fletcher of TransAfrica Forum, Scott Nova of the Worker Rights Consortium, Stewart Acuff of the AFL-CIO Organizing Department, Evelyn Zepeda of the Solidarity Center, representatives of Jobs with Justice and many more!!
