Sat, Oct 7, 2017 - 9:30am to 12:30pm


Are you beating your head against the wall trying to get your co-workers involved in your union or trying to start one? These workshops are for you.

Learn proven strategies for drawing other people in and developing a winning plan of action based on the book Secrets of a Successful Organizer.

Join us Saturday, October 7 from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at 204 Pray Harrold, Eastern Michigan University, Ypsilanti, Michigan

Please choose one of two workshops:

1. Turning an Issue into a Campaign: Everybody has complaints, but an organizer has the skills to turn problems into opportunities. Learn how to sort out the issues you hear from co-workers, recognize the ones that have organizing potential, and bring people together to make an escalating plan to solve the problem.


2. How to Have an Organizing Conversation: Organizing conversations are the key tool for engaging your co-workers, taking action and getting results.
