Discuss jobs and unions, Sept. 24

North Bay Jobs with Justice will discuss topics including why unions matter and the consequences of union decline, what is the new labor movement, what is social movement unionism and how does that differ from business unionism. We will explore why unions must build community-labor coalitions to organize low income, immigrants, youth and women workers and the role of Jobs with Justice in building community-labor coalitions. We will also learn about successful organizing campaigns, specifically Unite Here at the Hyatt Vineyard Creek Hotel and to include the ways that the public can become involved with jobs with Justice campaigns and the labor movement. 467 Sebastopol Ave. Santa Rosa.

For more information go to or call 707-8777-6650.
