Today on Your Call: How do you organize without a union?

Nov 8, 2012

On today's Your Call, we’ll talk about effective organizing tactics for non-union workers.    Internal Walmart documents show that the company fears employee uprisings. They have no collective bargaining power. Are their tactics working?  What can we learn from their actions and those of other non-unionized workforces?  Join us at 10am Pacific or post a comment here.  Have you organized on the workplace without being in a union? It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.
