The Militant Labor Forum Presents:


From Strikes and Factory Occupations to the Formation of the
CIO (Congress of Industrial Organizations):


How the Unions Were Built and 
Lessons for the Fight to Win
Unionization Today


Unionization in the U.S. is about 12 percent and bosses are
pressing for longer workdays, fewer benefits and less safety protection.  The United Auto Workers at GM and Chrysler
now have a two-tier wage system with many new hires starting at half the wages
of current workers.  Join a discussion
about how workers won unions in the past and what it will take to respond to
the assault of the bosses on workers’ rights, including opposing raids and
deportations and fighting for unionization. 


Speaker: Laura Garza, socialist active in union struggles
and the fight for legalization
