A quick look at the detailed agenda shows a list of workshops and presenters that are not going to disappoint anyone engaged as a unionist.
Part of the long history of the labour movement is its struggle from the bottom-up not just against Capital, but also to modify, test and reform our own democratic structures, outreach tools, analysis and political campaigns.
The rise of Capital’s economic and political power to heights not seen in almost a century means the labour movement’s militants must continue to challenge ourselves and the movement. To win, we must fully understand and coordinate using new and old tools to rebuild workers’ power.
LaborNotes is one of the key gatherings of labour union militants in North America that facilitates this constant re-imagining and rebuilding.
Over the weekend, there will be many presentations and discussions from organising a new local, to building lasting democracy within your union, to engaging with the community outside of the workplace to building independent worker political power and international worker solidarity. There are also skills and analysis-focused workshops that seek to bring activists together to discuss how to translate analysis to strategy and tactics on the ground.
