Amid the devastation brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic and its economic fallout, labor has an opening to lead a mass movement towards a just recovery for the working class. Yet this is also precisely the moment when organized labor is at its weakest, after decades of corporate attacks and neoliberal policymaking–and for UAW members, a pivotal moment for the future of our own union. 

How can workers turn the tide that has for decades decimated organized labor in the US? How can workers rebuild a powerful labor movement to fight back against austerity? What are the strengths and weaknesses of the models proposed for building worker power?

Join DSA-LA’s Labor Committee and UAW 2865 for a moderated discussion with labor organizers from UAW, CTU, CWA, and Bargaining for the Common Good about union reform and the future of labor.

Panelists:

  • Jenny Worley – author of Neon Girls and currently president of AFT 2121 (SF City College Faculty)
  • Steve Lawton – president of CWA Local 1102
  • Mike Canon (UAW)
  • Jackson Potter (CTU)
