Jane McAlevey - A Collective Bargain: Unions, Organizing, and the Fight for Democracy — in conversation with Sara Nelson

Upcoming Event
Wednesday, January 15, 2020 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

In this rigorously argued follow-up to her acclaimed Raising Expectations (and Raising Hell), Nation correspondent and Jacobin columnist McAlevey demonstrates that the answer to most of the nation’s seemingly intractable problems is labor unions. Drawing on her twenty-plus years as a union organizer, consultant, and activist, McAlevey looks closely at a wide range of workplaces across the country—from embattled schools to Pennsylvania hospitals, where nurses are fighting to develop a patient-centered unionism, and Silicon Valley, where tech workers are using old-fashioned collective action—to illuminate how unionization can help close  income inequality, negotiate climate justice, and end sexual harassment and racial disparities on the job. McAlevey will be in conversation with Sara Nelson, President of the Association of Flight Attendants.

McAlevey will be joined in conversation with Sara Nelson, national President of the Association of Flight Attendants (AFA).
