Abstract: 
As organized labor continues to come under attack, how are workers using militant shop floor action to resist these attacks and go on the offensive to win tangible gains? What strategies and tactics have workers utilized to win demands from their employers? This panel will feature workers from four recent union struggles: Babeland, Citibike, Ellen’s Stardust Diner, and Verizon, to explore the different types of collective action workers are employing to win organizing victories.
