AFT Summer School

August 3, 2019 - 12:00 am
As a result of the recent federal government shutdown, millennials are becoming activists, teachers are influencing politicians to fund public schools, and Oregon unions are overcoming right to work proponents’ prediction of organized labor’s demise. We are ready to cultivate an intergenerational labor movement for years to come!
 
Please join us on the University of Oregon campus in Eugene for a weekend of engaging classes and that will help you develop your leadership skills and unify labor activists across generations and industries.
 
This year’s keynote guest speaker will be Sara Nelson, President of the Association of Flight Attendants.
Oregon AFL-CIO President Tom Chamberlain will host a fireside chat on opening night.
