Description/Abstract of your Event:
President Trump, Congress, and the US Supreme Court are prepared to continue, even to escalate, the long-running attacks on the American labor movement, and national “right-to-work” laws will severely weaken public sector unions. How can workers organize in this political environment, which is a result not just of recent events, but also of decades of anti-labor policy in the United States? How can public sector workers defend their unions from outside threats, but also hold them accountable and force them to stand up to Trump? Members of MORE (the Movement of Rank & File Educators) will lead a discussion on the future of public sector unionism in general and the United Federation of Teachers in particular and how to prepare for the challenges of the future.
