Toronto IWW is happy to announce Working for Each Other, Working for Ourselves: A Revolutionary Public Service Worker-Organizer Summit, to be held October 3rd and 4th 2015 in Toronto, Ontario. Working for Each Other will draw together grassroots workplace organizers from around North America. A major component of today’s economy, the public services are often hit first and hard by austerity and other cut backs. As workers, we need to organize ourselves to fight these battles in the community centres, grocery stores, clubs and office towers where we work for the benefit of other people.
To pitch us a workshop
Do you have a story to tell, skills to share, strategies to discuss, research to present or other contribution to make to the organizing of public services? Have you organized a union, job committee, direct action, general assembly or otherwise created more democracy on the job?
We are currently soliciting proposals for workshop, panel, talk and facilitated discussions from IWW members and non-members alike.
In order to make this event as accessible as possible, we are also seeking donations, both in-kind and financial, to help cover travel and other costs, especially those related to accessibility.
How to attend
Registration for participants will open sometime in July. See below for ways to keep track of developments.
