This Sunday: Organized Labor Rising, PDA Supporting
Join us Sunday at 4pm ET/1pm PT for a Town Hall laser-focused on the most promising thing happening in American society today: the dynamic rebirth of Organized Labor. We’ll celebrate the excellent contract won by the striking Writers Guild of America; we’ll discuss the political and economic significance of the moment; most importantly, we’ll organize for PDA’s solidarity actions in support of striking UAW workers! RSVP Now!
This historic moment is one that many of us in PDA have been looking forward to for decades. Organized labor is on the march and on the rise across American society!
New industries are being organized, often by a new generation of labor activists, and in shops where the average age of the workforce is under 30. At the same time, many of the oldest, most established unions—the Teamsters, the Auto Workers!—have regained their mojo! And the public is loving it! Polls show landslide levels of support for unions and workers.
All of which means one thing and one thing only: we cannot relent in our support for organized labor and the working class! So this Sunday we will be discussing how PDA can contribute to making sure this upswing can last more than a season—that a powerful, unapologetic labor movement becomes a fixture across American society, the bedrock foundation of a new American economy for the 21st century defined by fully inclusive middle-class prosperity.
We’ll be joined by both Scott Houldieson, a labor union and PDA activist from Indiana who will give us an update on the ongoing auto workers’ strike, and screenwriter Howard Rodman, a longtime member of the WGA negotiating team, to share his thoughts on the importance of the writers’ victory for all workers.
