Join our continuing sessions of the Labor Speaker Series! We talk to DC-area union and worker leaders and organizers on how they build worker power on the shop floor and in the DMV. Josh Turner, President of the Alexandria Association of Fire Fighters will be our April speaker. The union has been key in leading the fight to expand collective bargaining to public service workers in Virginia. Hear how the pandemic has impacted the public service, how backwards Virginia’s labor laws are to the rest of the country, and how you can get involved to expand workplace democracy in the Old Dominion.
