Labor Notes is sponsoring several in-depth workshops for union activists in the New York area, including:

Defending our Jobs: Employers are on the warpath. Find out how to protect you and your co-workers from harassment, layoffs, and attacks on our standards. This workshop will cover everything from strategies for bargaining in tough times to conducting strikes and other job actions. You will also learn how to build community and political allies in order to fight back and win.
Internal Organizing - Key to a Strong Union: Powerful unions depend on active members. Whether you're an elected leader or thinking about running for office, taking over is just the first step. Learn proven strategies to beat apathy and get your co-workers moving. We'll also discuss why building a democratic union is more important than ever.

Secrets of a Successful Organizer Where ever you work there are secrets to organizing a strong, effective, collective voice on the job. These "secrets" of successful organizing can be learned and practiced in almost any situation. This workshop will help turn you into a better organizer. Using real life examples you'll learn how to map a workplace, pick good issues, build momentum, and turn campaign victories into durable power on the job.
Workshops will run between 1 and 5 p.m. at Murry Bergtraum High School, located at 411 Pearl St.

The school is located beside a tall white building with vertical black windows and a Verizon logo, at the foot of the Brooklyn Bridge.
