The DC Industrial Workers of the World would like to invite you to attend our Organizer Training 101 workshop.
This is a two day course on building power in your workplace from the bottom up using direct action. It focuses on techniques for building a committee of workers who are confident and capable of addressing issues in the workplace, as well as overcoming obstacles like worker apathy, anxiety, and your boss’s counter-organizing efforts.
This workshop is open to all workers, so please forward this invitation to anyone who may be interested. The skills built in this workshop are useful to anyone interested in building power on their job, whether it is in the context of an IWW campaign, another union, or any other type of worker organization.
The training will be held at a location TBA in the District of Columbia on May 30 and 31. The Saturday portion will run from 9:00-5:00 and Sunday will go from 10:00-4:00.
