Labor Cafe: Why is it so much easier to organize unions in Canada than in the US?
Join us for the Labor Cafe, a biweekly venue for students, faculty, staff, and members of the community to gather for casual yet critical conversation on contemporary issues related to work, equity, and social justice. All are welcome, with any or no knowledge of labor issues. We’ll provide the caffeine and treats to boost your energy; you bring the questions and concerns to inform the discussions.
This week's topic will be "Why is it so much easier to organize unions in Canada than in the US?" Michelle Langlois, LL.M. International Human Rights Law and Member of the Quebec Bar, will facilitate discussion.
