Join the Emergency Workplace Organizing Committee (EWOC) for a discussion about the timely new book Labor Power and Strategy, a rich reflection on how the working class can exercise its potentially mighty power in various industries and sectors. In Labor Power and Strategy, renowned labor historian John Womack advances a proposal that unions should focus on organizing workers in the strategic positions and “choke points” within the economy that have maximum potential leverage and power. The book’s editors invited responses from 10 of the most thoughtful organizers and scholars in the labor movement, with a diverse range of ideas on ways forward for labor. This discussion will feature Professor Womack, book editor Peter Olney, and respondents Melissa Shetler and Gene Bruskin. This event will be 90 minutes to allow for plenty of time. Register now for this lively and important discussion!
