This is a two day course on building power in your workplace from the bottom up. It focuses on techniques for building a committee of workers who are confident and capable of addressing issues in the workplace, and for overcoming obstacles like worker apathy, anxiety, and the bosses’ counter-organizing efforts. The course is free/donation, and is open to everyone –so please forward to anyone who might be interested!

Do I have to be a member of the IWW to attend? Absolutely not! The skills built in this workshop are useful to anyone interested in building power on their job whether it is in the context of an IWW campaign, an independent union, the mainstream labour movement or another formation. Learn more about the IWW.

We will get started on Day 1 of the course (Saturday, May 16) at 9:00 am and end at 5:00 pm. Day 2 of the course (Sunday, May 17) will run from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. There will be a social event Saturday night. Attendance for the full two days of the workshop is mandatory in order to get the full picture of the methods.

Food will be provided, and child care will be provided as required (please indicate on registration).
