Epic WORKERS' PROJECT MEETING

After 18 years of experimentation, research, and development, our Workers' Project might be edging toward overnight success. This means we will need to quickly burn through the gears to get up to speed. Your ideas, thoughts, and experiences will be critical to our collective efforts to amplify workers own voice and power in order to be more fully valued. It you can not attend please contact either Tom or Cheryl or an attending WPI member so your thoughts can be represented. We will be addressing the follwing monumental topics:

From the Bottom Up: Where was Labor on Labor Day?

So, where was Labor on Labor Day?

Labor Day is Monday. And while many folks take the long weekend to relax, the symbolic end of the summer means something different to union organizers.

For them it’s a day to celebrate the solidarity of their workers.

This year, policy in Indiana and across the country  has continued to limit the influence and power unions have – and union membership is following that downward trend.
