Detroit troublemakers are planning a day of skill-building workshops, education, and strategy discussions to put some movement back in the labor movement.

This school will be a great opportunity for union members, stewards, and activists to share strategies and build the solidarity required in these tough times.

A light breakfast, lunch, and workshop materials are provided with cost of registration.

WHEN: Saturday, March 30, 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.

WHERE: Wayne State University, DeRoy Auditorium, 5203 Cass Ave, Detroit

COST: We have a sliding scale of suggested donations: $25 regular registration, $15 reduced registration, $40 for regular registration and one-year subscription. Walk-in registrations are welcome!

Workshops on:

  • Secrets of a Successful Organizer
  • Contract Campaigns
  • Race and Labor
  • More to come!

We are excited to have Rashida Tlaib, U.S. Representative for Michigan's 13th congressional district, joining a panel of autoworkers and community activists to discuss how the fight against GM plant closures can be part of the push for a Green New Deal!
