Today on Your Call: How can workers and unions communicate with the public more effectively?


On today’s Your Call, we’ll talk about the divide between organized labor and the public. The recent Bay Area Rapid Transit workers’ strike failed to win wide spread support from commuters. What might bridge the gap between the unions and the public? What do unions need to be telling people? What do you think about workers organizing and striking? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.  

Guests:

Chris Finn, BART train operator and the recording secretary of Amalgamated Transit Union 1555

Anat Shenker-Osorio, Oakland-based communications consultant and the author of Don't Buy It: The Trouble with Talking Nonsense about the Economy

Mike Elk, labor journalist for In These Times
