Opportunity for IWW Organizer Training in Albuquerque

The Albuquerque Industrial Workers of the World GMB will be hosting Organizing 101 Training on June 1st and 2nd at La Plaza del Encuentro (714 4th St SW). The training is open to any worker, employed or unemployed. There is a $5 registration fee and $30 suggested donation. 

About the Training
IWW's Organizer Training provides workers with the training needed to organize at their jobs. The training provides a foundation in U.S. labor law, and gives workers direct action tactics necessary to assert their rights on the job, with or without union representation.

The training also covers the basics of building an organizing committee, reaching out to coworkers through one-on-one meetings, and building strength up to the point of going public with a union. Learn to organize in your workplace through discussion with experienced organizers, workshops, role-playing, and other exercises.

Breakfast and lunch will be provided on both days. A vegan option will be available. Training materials will also be provided.

To register: email or call 505-255-4684
