Red Talk – Organizing Methods in the Steel Industry

Mon, May 16 at 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Join comrades for a presentation and discussion on William Z. Foster’s Organizing Methods in the Steel Industry

“The organizational principles and methods here developed can be easily adapted to problems of organizing other mass production and large-scale industries such as auto, rubber, chemical, textile, etc. There is a great poverty in the labor movement of such literature. This poverty is felt also in labor schools. This manual should prove very popular for trade union courses in the various workers’ labor schools. Let us hope that this is a beginning of the development of such literature to fill the need in the present growth of the trade union movement.”

– Jack Stachel

This important work should be required reading for all those interested in labor organizing.  In recent news, this work inspired a lot of the tactics of the Amazon union organizing.  We encourage folks to read the work before attending but no reading is required.  We will be giving a presentation on the work and followed by an open discussion on the work.

This presentation will be held online through Zoom.
