A Collective Response to Workplace Bullying

Workplace bullying has negative effects not just on the targeted individual – it can lead to a culture of fear and retaliation and a decline in employee morale. In this interactive workshop we’ll learn the perspectives and tools needed to develop our collective courage to overcome divisions at our work sites and build unity and respect among coworkers. The course will be facilitated by professional trainer and coach, Joe Fahey, former President of Teamsters Local 912 who is featured in the book White Men Challenging Racism.

Labor Management Committees: Tips and Traps

Labor-Management Committees (LMCs) can be a useful strategy for representing members, especially when new issues arise mid-contract. On the downside, LMCs can be a way for management to appear to listen, without actually doing anything, tying up important issues in endless investigation/conversation. At their worst LMCs can drift into dangerous territory and be utilized by management to delay or divide the union.

  • SAN RAFAEL Office – Thursday, May 30 / 5:30 pm – 8:00 pm, 4340 Redwood Highway, Suite D-307, San Rafael, CA
