Organiser Training 101

The Edmonton IWW Propaganda/Education Committee and the Alberta Public Interest Research Group are pleased to announce this year’s fall Organiser Training 101!

The IWW’s Organiser Training is an intensive, hands-on, two day workshop where
participants learn basic tools needed to successfully organize
their workplaces to collectively and directly address workplace issues.

These tools are taught through role plays, group facilitated discussion, and
interactive lectures. Topics include: gathering contact information, approaching
co-workers, building an organizing committee, and legal issues relevant to
workers who participate in workplace organizing.

OT 101 is a great space to learn new skills and practice those you
already have! Breakfast, lunch, snacks and beverages will be provided.
If you need child care, that can be arranged, just please tell us in advance.

Besides the training itself, we are trying to arrange a speaker for the
Friday night, and Friday/Saturday generally have IWW social events in
the evening as well.

Save the date:

Saturday/Sunday September 10/11

Bonus! storytime: Once upon a time I skipped OT because whatever, I’d already
been, I’ve got that stuff down pat. Then I got a job where it would have been
really useful, and I’d forgotten everything, and I regretted my decision!
Don’t be me, come to OT!
