Secrets of a Successful Organizer Training

This training is being offered by Labor Notes.

Registration is required. Register soon, as space is limited. Click here to register. 

 from 10 a.m. to noon, you'll get to choose one of two simultaneous classes. Choose either:
  • Building the Union in a Right-to-Work Environment, with Chris Brooks of Labor Notes staff, who has years of experience as a union organizer in right-to-work Tennessee.


  • Assembling Your Dream Team (Finding Leaders and Mapping Your Workplace), with Jane Slaughter, former editor of Labor Notes. 

Please arrive at 9:30 for registration and to browse our books and t-shirts. Classes will start promptly at 10 a.m.
State Hall is at 5143 Cass  Ave. (corner of Putnam), one block north of Warren. It's very easy to find, a red-and-white-ish flat-roofed building right across from the Detroit Public Library. Rooms 218-219 are on the second floor. Take the stairs near either entrance. There is an elevator.
You can park in Wayne State's Parking Structure #6, on Putnam, just east of Cass. It's expensive: probably $9 for the time you'll be in the classes. Daily maximum is $10 (which would cover your time at lunch afterward as well). Cash or credit cards accepted.
You can also park on the street using the meters/kiosks (coins or credit card), for $1 an hour, but the maximum allowed is two hours—and they do ticket aggressively. You can extend the two-hour maximum remotely via cellphone if you pay using the city's ParkMobile app.

Afterwards, feel free to join the group for lunch Sweet Lorraine's Mac n' Brewz, a short block away.
