Green Sunday: Workers’ Organizing in the Age of the Pandemic

Even as we are embroiled in both a health and economic crisis, workers face not only massive layoffs, but a range of issues around safety and protective equipment, cuts in pay/resources, and loss of housing and adequate food supply.

Yet workers throughout the nation, both in unions and outside, are resisting not only around basic needs, but expanding demands around control of work conditions and joining collective labor organizations.

We will present two labor activists who will discuss local and national campaigns to support the fight back of working people in this critical time

Speakers:

Aaron Hall is a member of IATSE (International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees), Local 107 and chair of the East Bay DSA Labor Committee. He came to political/labor organizing through a union workplace drive in 2015-2017. He has helped the DSA Labor Committee build a capacity for grassroots organization, solidarity support and labor education. Aaron is also helping develop a statewide network of DSA labor groups and the national DSA Emergency Workplace Organizing Committee (along with the United Electrical Workers union).

There will also be a representative of the Oakland Education Association (teachers union) crisis organizing team who will discuss efforts to halt school closures, as were as current issues such as distance learning and Internet 4 All, alongside community and parent/student allies.

Green Sundays are a series of free public programs & discussions on topics “du jour” sponsored by the Green Party of Alameda County and held on the 2nd Sunday of each month. The monthly business meeting of the County Council of the Green Party follows, at 6:30 pm. Council meetings are open to anyone who is interested.
