West Coast  Labor Conference
Building Rank & File Power!
For A Democratic Trade Union Movement

Saturday June 22, 2002   9:00AM - 5:00PM
309 S. Oxford St/W. 3rd St. Los Angeles

Rank and file labor activists will be joining together to discuss and debate how we can take our unions back and go on the offensive against the union busting, privatization, contracting out and repression. Only a democratic trade union movement that breaks with labor-management collaboration is capable of defending working people. We need to come together so we can build solidarity links to back each other up in our struggles!
