Troublemakers from the Pacific Northwest are gathering for a day of strategizing and skills-building to strengthen our workers' movement.
Hear from union leaders and activists about how to fight back at work and win. Network and strategize with local organizers to take on looming budget cuts and the right-to-work threat.
