IWW Training this Weekend

This coming Saturday and Sunday (March 17th and 18th) the IWW will be hosting a Workplace Organizing Training 101.

This is a comprehensive two-day class on how to organize with co-workers to improve workplace conditions including (but are not limited to) better hours, wages, safety, paid sick days, 
maternity/paternity leave, paid days off, workplace dignity, and job security.

The training covers a diverse set of strategies such as building a workplace committee, engaging in solidarity unionism, direct action, and contract unionism.
It will answer questions like "What is a union?", "What laws protect me as a worker?", "What can I do to make immediate improvements?", "How can I unionize my workplace?", etc.

The Training will be at 500 W. Cermak in Room 501 from 10am-6pm both days.Doors will open at 9:30 am for complimentary breakfast and greetings. 
A lunch time and breaks will be scheduled. We are asking attendees for a$20.00 donation (includes whole weekend), which will cover the cost of lunch, flyers, etc.
No one turned away for lack of funds.
