Workplace Organizer Training- February 18th and 19th in Seattle

Cascade People's Center
February 18th and 19th
10:00am to 4:00pm *

Organizing in the workplace for justice is only one of many steps to
be taken towards a better world. However, as multi-national
corporations and U.S. labor law continue to work hand in hand against
workers, the U.S. labor movement has taken many steps backwards.
Today, workplace organizing falls dramatically short of the needs of
workers in many industries.

Our union wants to see this change. We believe in building solidarity,
democracy, and workers power on the job. This is why we are hosting an
organizer training on February 18th and 19th, to empower a new
generation of workers with the skills necessary to organize on the
job. For us, this is the path to building a new alternative on the
shop floor against corporate greed and injustice.

The training itself will be conducted by members of the Starbucks
Workers Union and Bay Area IWW. Subjects covered will include
salting, shop mapping, role playing, and other organizing tactics.

Regardless of whether you are frustrated at your job, want to fight
for change, or are just curious about what union organizing is, you
are welcome to join us for this training. Get a hold of the IWW at
the following contacts with your phone number and email address. We
will send you a registration form for the training.
