Join us for a series of classes to discuss the powerful legacy of U.S. unions, the labor movement’s recent decline, and how we can mobilize workers here and around the world.
We just celebrated May 1st — International Workers Day — in the streets, along with millions of workers around the world.
That holiday began as a commemoration of the 1886 Haymarket massacre in Chicago where police fired on workers during a general strike for the eight hour workday. It is part of the hidden history that never gets taught to working-class people in the United States. Join us in a three part series class May 15th, 22nd and 29th to recover that lost history, to learn from it and understand the militant legacy of U.S unions.
The series will analyze why there has been a decline of the unions and why there is an urgent need to rebuild a strong labor movement. The Verizon workers' strike is one indicator of the untapped power of the working class.
See you this Sunday, the 15th — and the two following Sundays!
