Calling All Amateur Photographers
The MLKCLC is looking for an amateur photographer to capture the moments/events and special occasions of the Council and manage our Instagram account. Are you a creative, social justice type that enjoys attending rally’s, forums and council meetings? Are you the type who always travels with your camera or has your cell phone in hand taking pictures? If that sounds like you, we need you! The MLKCLC is a fluid and fast paced environment that reflects many faces and personalities of the labor movement. Our ideal candidate is someone who is extremely comfortable working with women and recognizes the importance of intersectionality and the labor movement. The person selected will have control of artistic/creative direction – we know what looks good and trust that you will too.
If you’re interested please send your contact information to email@example.com and include a short description of why you’re interested in social justice and your connection, if any, to the labor movement.
Organizing Under "Right to Work"
The February fight for union representation for Boeing workers in South Carolina was an unfortunate loss for IAM and the workers they hoped to organize. Boeing utilized every union busting tactic in their effort to misinform workers about the benefits of being union and to take away their workers ability to join together to negotiate for fair wages and workplace standards. IAM Organizer, Gabrielle Rogano, was on the ground in South Carolina and she will be on hand to give her first-hand account of the challenges faced and lessons learned.
What: OWLS Meeting
