UPDATED: Orange County IWW Organizer Training: January 19-20/2013

POSTPONED - to be rescheduled for later this Spring.
In the democratic spirit of the slogan "Every member an organizer!" the IWW's Organizer Training provides workers with the basic skills and strategies needed to organize at their jobs. The training covers the basics of building an organizing committee, reaching out to coworkers through one-on-one meetings, and building strength up to the point of going public with a union. Learn to organize in your workplace through discussion with experienced organizers, workshops, role playing, and other exercises. The training also provides a foundation in U.S. labor law. The training provides workers with the direct action tactics they need to assert their rights on the job, with or without union representation.

Attendance at both days is highly preferable, since the second day builds upon the previous day's instruction. However, participants will still learn valuable skills and tactics, even if they are only able to attend one day of the training.

Bagels and coffee, as well as a lunch will be provided on both days. A vegan option will be available. Training materials will also be provided. A $10 donation is suggested but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. We will also be having a branch social at 6 PM.

The IWW, founded in 1905, is a radical rank and file union open to all workers, regardless of occupation or employment status. The Orange County Sub-Branch of the IWW meets on the 1st Saturday of each month at 12pm at the Orange County Catholic Worker in Santa Ana.
