Every union member should know the basics of labor law and how to use it. This training provides activists with an introduction to labor law—the rights provided to workers, how those rights are enforced, and how to spot some of the ways that employers will bend and break the law to try and undermine our collective power.

This workshop is facilitated by Gay Semel, retired attorney who previously worked at Region 2 of the NLRB and was District Counsel for District 1 of CWA for more than 30 years.
