Friday, September 30 - Saturday, October 1, 2011
University of Massachusetts, Boston

SEIU Local 615, the MTA, the AFT-MA, and The Labor Resource Center invite you to join us for an international conference at UMass Boston.

The higher education industry is changing rapidly in the US and internationally. Through this conference we will analyze the trends in the higher education industry in the US and the implications for union organizing, examine national and international efforts to craft a more expansive vision of higher education that works for all stakeholders, and explore building union mutual aid and support networks.

Workshop tracks will include:

  • Building Industry Density: Organizing the Unorganized
  • Bad Jobs in Higher Ed: Contracting Out, Casual Labor & Privatization
  • Your Tax Dollars at Work: All Higher Education is Public
  • Going Global: The Spread of For-Profit Higher Education
