Labor Studies | Union Organizing
L280 | 6784 | Steven Ashby

Many in the labor movement believe that labor's existence depends on
new organizing.  But what exactly does new organizing entail?  What
works and what doesn't?  This course will explore the ABCs of union
organizing; corporate tactics to defeat union drives; the role of the
community in union organizing; and innovative new labor strategies in
organizing.  The course will provide an in-depth understanding of how
to organize a union.  It will also analyze skills useful for any
student or community organizer, such as building labor-community
partnerships, public speaking; using the media; and working with
religious organizations.
