Madison DSA’s Labor Working Group meets every two weeks for our chapter’s labor activists, union members and organizing workers. LWG members are union members and staff, restaurant workers organizing across the city, and workers who are trying to form unions at their workplaces.
LWG is part workshop for activists trying to figure out how to be effective at the workplace, part education center and part strategizing for how to build a strong movement locally.
