The Edmonton branch of the Industrial Workers of the World and the
Alberta Public Interest Research Group are pleased to announce the
followup to its 101 Organiser Training: OT 102.
The IWW Organiser Training 101 that we ran in February taught
participants the basic tools needed to successfully organize their
workplaces so that they can collectively and directly address
workplace issues. This training continues where the 101 training
leaves off. In it organizers will discuss what an organizing committee
does, how to make it effective, and how to keep it growing.
One of our co-trainers for the weekend is Erik Forman, a Minneapolis
IWW organiser of many campaigns (see Starbucks Workers Union @ Mall of
America, and Jimmy Johns Workers Union)
The training takes place April 9 and 10 on the University of Alberta
campus. A lunch and light breakfast is provided.
If you are interesting in attending please RSVP firstname.lastname@example.org with the

We look forward to hearing back from you!
Additionally we will be hosting a panel discussion of IWW members from
Edmonton, Winnipeg, and Minneapolis of labour struggles of the IWW,
the post office, and within Wisconsin! This will be on April 8, 1900 @
The Hydeaway (10209 100 Ave)
As usual feel free to join us for our social evening on Saturday which
