Why We Strike

Date
Mon 23.09.19
Timings
11am – 12:30pm

How and why do we go on strike? How do strikes build our power? How are they connected to building socialism? Whether you have organised a strike before or just want to find out more, this participatory session will provide plenty of space for discussion. Join workers from a range of backgrounds - from Brighton Wetherspoons workers to delivery couriers - to workshop how to build a strike in today's working world.
