About this event

Bristol Union School run monthy session that gives workers the skills to organise and win at work through trade unions.

If you are fed up of being pushed around, but are new to unions and organising or you're and old hand and would like to hone skills you already have, come to our free sessions, starting this March, and continuing throughout the year.

To beat the cost of living crisis and live and work with dignity isn't easy. The Bosses are squeezing everything they can out of working-class people. To beat them, you need to build power in your workplace that can deliver mass-participation actions.

Bristol Union School is about sharing the skills to do it.

The Curriculum for the rest of 2022 is:

  • Thursday 28th July: Speaking Strategically - We will discuss why people dont unionise and practice ways to change their minds with strategic use of language.

  • Thursday 25th August: Structured Organising Conversations - will cover the idea of integrating strategic organising plans and one-to-one conversations via the critical tool of workplace organising: Structured Organising Conversations (a step-by-step method to get workers to commit to action)

  • Thursday, 29th September: The Class-War-Game - we put it all together with a role-playing game where you will speed run organising a hypothetical workplace using the skills we have built over previous sessions.

If you are interested in catch-up sessions, please let me know!
