Do you need revving up? ...a break from the daily slog? Want to support area activists going to the Labor Notes Conference this spring in Chicago?

Come hear Steve Early talk about his new book Save Our Unions: Dispatches from a Movement in Distress. Hear new ideas and new takes on old ones, stories, from current workers’ struggles in our town and share what’s working and what’s not.

• Steve Early, author, labor journalist, and former CWA organizer
• Portland teachers, parents, students, food and retail workers, day laborers, building trades, port, city, state, university, community college workers, and others, fighting for fairness in our town

Steve Early’s book and Labor Notes' new book on the Chicago Teachers will be available:

  • Save Our Unions: Dispatches from a Movement in Distress, by Steve Early
  • How to Jump-Start Your Union: Lessons from the Chicago Teachers, Labor Notes

Plus: we’re raising money to send worker activists from throughout Portland to the Labor Notes Conference in Chicago April 4-6 this year!
