Second Annual Conference on Labor and Community Solidarity
September 17th, 2016
San Diego State University – Storm Hall - See map at http://www.clcsolidarity.org/conference/
When We Fight We Win!
Over the last year, we have seen the power of labor and community organization to come together and win. The Fight for $15, contract negotiations of the California Faculty Association on the California State University campuses, the CWA strike against Verizon, and more.
We have also seen important examples of working people and their community supporters stand together to defend union, human, and worker rights. This includes efforts of teachers across Mexico defending themselves against state efforts to break their union. Reminiscent of the great labor struggles of the United Farm Workers (UFW), farmworkers on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border taking action building international support for a boycott of one of the world’s largest corporate agricultural producers who refuses to negotiate in good faith.
We have also witnessed a higher level of collaboration between labor, students, and community members. This includes efforts to defend renters’ rights, the inclusion of solidarity and social justice stipulations in contract negotiations, and labor-community mobilizations behind campaigns that represent our interests from the workplace to our neighborhoods.
This year’s conference will capture and communicate these new developments in a format where we can share, learn, and strengthen the labor movement and the ties with community-based social justice organizations. Join us!
