Thursday. 9/12, 6pm-8pm 99 Pickets monthly solidarity meeting / Asamblea mensual de solidaridad obrera de 99 Pickets Where: SEIU 1199, 310 W. 43rd St., New York, NY
Join 99 Pickets, New York’s worker solidarity group, for our new monthly meetings. On the second Thursday of every month, workers and organizers from campaigns around the city will join with activists to find out about the labor organizing that’s going on, and explore in-depth the issues that we encounter and overcome when organizing.
At the next meeting, workers and organizers will discuss how they’ve fought employer opposition and intimidation, and we’ll hear from any new campaigns that haven’t yet attended our meeting.
Thursday, September 12, 6-8pm 310 W. 43 St. (at 8th Ave.) in the basement RSVP on FB: http://on.fb.me/13Z5yjQ

99 Pickets is restructuring and working to expand its activities. We’ll provide an ongoing forum to find out about labor organizing going on in New York City and act as a solidarity network of activists who plan creative actions and other events in support of campaigns. Our goal is to help workers improve their working conditions, build a culture of solidarity, and grow the worker’s movement in New York City.
