The Labor Notes Conference is the biggest gathering of grassroots union activists, worker center leaders, and all-around troublemakers! Join your union, United Campus Workers, and thousands of other union members, officers, and labor activists who are on the front lines in their workplaces and communities.
Meet people from across the country and around the world.
What you can do now:
1. Save the date: April 6-8, 2018, Chicago, IL.
2. Register for the conference if you have the means! It's $150. However, there is an Early Bird Special: $105 before February 23! And if you're a UCW member you get HALF OFF. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org for the discount code!
3a. If you do not have the means, no worries, there are options for full coverage of the registration fee!
3b. Apply for a scholarship ASAP! We encourage all members to do this by going here: http://labornotes.formstack.com/forms/conference_2018_scholarship_application; sign-up to work a shift at the conference (for example helping check people in) by also filing out the scholarship form and checking YES to the question of "Are you willing to take on a volunteer assignment at the conference in exchange for your scholarship?*."
UCW is working hard to cover the remaining costs associated with the conference, i.e. transportation and lodging. Our budget & fundraising team is hard at work to make sure everyone that's interested, can attend w/o financial hardship. An update about trip logistics will be sent in the coming weeks!
