GUEST SPEAKER INFO:
Joe Burns is the author of Reviving the Strike: How Working People Can Regain Power and Transform America, Strike Back, and most recently Class Struggle Unionism. A veteran union negotiator and labor lawyer, he has negotiated contracts in the airline and health care industries. Joe is currently the General counsel and director of bargaining of the Association of Flight Attendants CWA.
Excerpt from Reviving the Strike: "If the American labor movement is to rise again, it will not be as a result of electing Democrats, the passage of legislation, or improved methods of union organizing. Rather, workers will need to rediscover the power of the strike. Not the ineffectual strike of today, where employees meekly sit on picket lines waiting for scabs to take their jobs, but the type of strike capable of grinding industries to a halt—the kind employed up until the 1960s."
At our meeting on December 9th, Joe will be discussing the following topics and will have time for a short Q&A session after the discussion:
- Building a Fighting Union
- Workers are Ready to Fight
- Advanced Action
This is a FREE event.
