AAPI workers & non-profit professionals – do you know your rights on the job? Are you curious about unions and how they can benefit workers like you? The APALA National Office, its DC chapter, and the AFL-CIO Organizing Institute are partnering together to hold a 3-Day training for AAPI workers in Washington, D.C. on August 3-5, 2018! This training focuses on teaching the fundamentals of union organizing, with specific attention to our communities’ unique labor history, issues, and needs. Come hear from workers like you who have successfully organized at their jobs.
