Workfloor Organizing & What Winning Looks Like

WHY? CUPW is only as strong as our members are properly trained, organized and mobilized to collectively assert our demands. Our local invites all members willing to help this empowerment process to participate in a paid, union organizer training opportunity. Nothing changes for the better without your help, and more hands make lighter work!

WHAT? In this new Organizing For Power series, we explore successful organizing drives with the health workers and organizers in Germany who led them, and get to the heart of what helped these incredible campaigns win their contract demands. What set the stage for their victory, and how did they get there? Tune in to find out.

WHO? Participants will be asked to apply these lessons to our own experiences in CUPW, and what action will be needed to strengthen our own union and improve our working lives. Hosted by the Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung (Germany) and led by Jane McAlevey.
