Young people are answering the call to organize their peers in Boston with the Futures Committee of the Greater Boston Labor Council holding a conference later this month:
Greater Boston Labor Council’s Futures Committee is putting on: “Organizing Our Future.” The goal of the conference is to foster and develop the skills of young union members to lead the next generation of the labor movement. Workshops will include “Organizing 101” and “Re-Branding the Labor Movement through Multimedia Technology.” Our guest speaker will be Boston City Councillor-At-Large Felix G. Arroyo.
The conference is open to young union members who are 35 years old and younger. We would greatly appreciate it if GBLC affiliates would send representatives from their local unions.
Attendance is FREE. Childcare will be provided upon Request.
Please RSVP to the GBLC Organizer Rosa Blumenfeld by Friday, February 18th, 2011. Rosa can be reached at the office at 617-723-2370, on her cell at 617-460-9821 or via email at email@example.com.
