Register now for the 2010 Labor Notes conference!

Join a thousand other activists from unions, worker centers, and workplace struggles for the 2010 Labor Notes conference, April 23-25 in Detroit.

The three-day conference will host more than 100 workshops and meetings that will help working people and labor activists organize in their unions, at their work, in their industries, and on their campaigns. From nitty-gritty skills-building workshops to sessions tackling strategic debates for the labor movement, the Labor Notes conference is a shot in the arm for our movement's grassroots activists. Rub shoulders and share strategies with others facing the same obstacles as you at work.

Themes include: Defend jobs, contracts, and unions during the economic crisis.
The Republic Windows and Doors Chicago sit-in taught a lesson: we can win allies—and win—even in tough times. What are the strategies that work?

Hold the line on the shop floor. Technology and management schemes are changing the workplace dramatically. Are we keeping up?

Organize and build unions that work. We’ll discuss strategies for starting and strengthening unions with members at the helm, not just numbers on a spreadsheet.

Examine labor's political agenda. Unions went all-out in the elections, but labor law and health care reform aren’t measuring up. What’s the best use of our political time and energy?

Bring up the next generation. We need more young workers than ever at this conference. We’re encouraging organizations to send workers under age 30, and building a special scholarship fund to get them there.

Protect the public sector. Don't let layoffs and budget cuts threaten the future of public sector work and public services.
