Conference Flyer

It's bigger than one workplace. Budget-cutting politicians and greedy corporations in Minnesota are pushing a coordinated agenda.

They want to slash wages, abolish pensions, outsource jobs, and gut public services. President Trump and his cronies are pushing for national right-to-work legislation as well as other policy attacks on unions, immigrants, public schools, and everyone's access to health care.

Minnesota union members and activists are going to have to build power and increase pressure locally and nationally.

Luckily, rank-and-file leaders and organizers are coming together March 18 to build skills and share strategies to unite and fight back.

We'll need unity to fight back and win.
