When workers look powerful, we feel powerful, and when we feel our most powerful, we win. How we look sways how much power bosses think we have, demonstrates and strengthens our unity, and helps demonstrate how amazing it is to be part of a union.

One of the most important tools in the rank-and-file toolbox for transforming the labor movement is running for local union office.

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

The school will be a great opportunity for union members and other workplace activists to share strategies and build the solidarity required in these tough times. »
