Bargaining and Beyond: Uniting to dismantle systems of inequity

Saturday, Nov. 20

9:15 a.m. to 2:45 p.m.

Let's educate, agitate, organize and inspire to dismantle systems of inequity and take collective action. Learn how to engage your members and your communities to implement educator-led solutions that work for our students and our schools.

Keynote Speaker: Elise Bryant, Labor Leader and Educator

After working 35 years as a labor educator, Bryant retired from her professorship at the National Labor College to start her own consulting service, the E.L.I.S.E. Consortium. Her areas of expertise include Communication Skills, Effective Committee Training, Leadership Training, Teaching Techniques, Labor History and Culture, Diversity Training, Organization Development and "Arts as a Tool for Organizing." Bryant currently serves as the executive director of the Labor Heritage Foundation, a non-profit organization that is the "art and soul of the labor movement."

In 2017, she became president of the Coalition of Labor Union Women (CLUW) and a month later was elected vice-president of CWA/TNG Local 32031.

Two elective sessions, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, will allow you to dive into a focused topic for 90 minutes and explore ways you can organize, bargain, and empower members to take action. Read about the electives.
