EVERETT, Wash. — How do we talk to members and coworkers who think differently than us regarding politics, racial and gender justice, membership, etc.? Would you like to be a better leader in your workplace and a voice for change? These are such big issues — what can we actually do about it?

“Bridging the Divide: Tools for Building Union Solidarity” is a participatory workshop designed to provide practical tools for building union solidarity within the workplace. It will be held from 9 to 11 a.m. this Saturday, March 26 via Zoom. Click here to register. Interpretation and closed captioning are available upon request.
