"Taking back the power: new directions in TWU 100"

An AUD forum with:
Roger Toussaint, President,  TWU Local 100;
Tim Schermerhorn, Vice President, TWU Local 100
[TBA], TWU Local 100

Moderator: Carl Biers, Executive Director,  AUD

In December, 2000, after nearly fifteen years of organizing, the militant
New Directions caucus in TWU 100 swept the local elections.

How did they do it? What lessons does the New Directions experience hold for
reformer activists in other unions? What lies ahead?

Join us for a discussion of these and other questions.
