From fast food and retail, to the public sector, throughout the logistics industry, and beyond, workers across the South are in motion and fighting back.
Join us for a public discussion between worker leaders in mostly non-collective bargaining workplaces from some of these key sectors to discuss the current political environment, share lessons drawn from the struggles they’ve been engaged in, and how these lessons can be applied in our work to build a broader, rank and file led worker movement in the South that can exercise power and organize the unorganized.
We’ll hear from:
> Union of Southern Service Workers
> Railroad Workers United
> North Carolina Public Service Workers Union, UE Local 150
> Amazon workers
> Southern Workers Assembly & Black Workers for Justice
> Performance by Fruit of Labor singing ensemble
> more TBA
Doors will open at 6pm for dinner and socializing, and the program will begin at 7pm. We’ll first hear reports and remarks from workers on the panel on their work and perspective, then open the floor for questions, comments, and discussion among those in attendance on these critical questions for our movement.
All are invited to join us for this timely public discussion, which kicks off the Southern Workers Assembly’s 2023 Southern Worker School, taking place in Charlotte throughout the weekend.
Organize the South!
