Vancouver IWW is pleased to announce an Organizer Training 101 (OT101) course for Spring 2013! OT101 is a two-day crash course on grassroots, direct action-driven solidarity unionism that will teach skills to help workers build power in their workplaces from the bottom up. It focuses on techniques for building a committee of workers who are confident and capable of addressing issues in the workplace, and for overcoming obstacles like worker apathy, anxiety, and the bosses’ counter-organizing efforts. The course is free (though a donation of $5/day is requested), and is open to everyone (not just IWW members) – so please forward this event to anyone who might be interested! We have established a Facebook page for this event here.
UPDATE: The training session has been condensed into a 1-day program to make it easier for people to schedule their affairs around it. The training session will now be held in its entirety on Saturday, April 27th, and there will no longer be a second day on Sunday, April 28th. Please see the full event time and location information below.
