Want to form a union in your workplace, or build more power within an existing union?

CGE is holding a week-long series of workshops, discussions, and film screenings for workers of all stripes to gain the skills and know-how needed for just these tasks.

Our Union Summer Camp is structured for anyone to attend regardless of their occupation (except no bosses) or prior experience in organizing/activism.

You do not need any prior union experience. You do not need to be currently employed. You do not need to be a “factory worker” or “professional” worker in a formal industry. You do not need to be planning to form a union right now or a union in your workplace (you could be hoping to organize tenants and still find these workshops useful).

The activities are open and free for all (except bosses). Zoom videoconferencing will be used and an online version of each workshop will be available after the camp is closed.
