Labor 101

Join us for the Labor 101 five part training series, launching Thursday October 20th at 8 PM ET. To get the most out of this training, we ask that registrants commit to attend all five sessions. The session topics and dates are as follows:

  • Session 1: Why the Working Class? 10/20/22 at 8 PM ET
  • Session 2: New Shop Organizing 11/3/22 at 8 PM ET
  • Session 3: Strike Support 11/17/2 at 8 PM ET
  • Session 4: Rank-and-file Pipelines 12/1 at 8 PM ET
  • Session 5: Let's Get to Work! 12/15 at 8 PM ET

Labor is on the rise. New organizing campaigns across Starbucks, Amazon, and now Trader Joe's. Major victories for union reform and democracy within the Teamsters and UAW. And a rising tide of union approval and interest from the general public, especially young people eager to learn how to join the labor movement. How can socialists in DSA be best positioned to both support and join these struggles?

DSA's Growth and Development Committee and the National Labor Commission are excited to announce a comprehensive 5 Week Course on Labor 101 to kickstart and deepen labor work across DSA chapters. This training series is aimed at members in chapters with either leadership roles in their labor formations (working groups, committees, branches, etc) or those looking to get work started. Learn from experienced organizers and case studies of chapters successfully running rank-and-file pipelines, strike support, EWOC coordination, and more!
