About this Event

1 day - June 10, Wednesday - 9:30am to 4:00pm

Striking with History combines training for activists with labour history to help people think creatively about today's struggles and tactics. It will draw on the experiences of the participants, interactive role-play, and history from the struggle for the 9-hour day to the recent Unite-Here hotel strike to develop critical thinking and organizing skills for activists and organizers.
