SINGLE PAYER WORKSHOP FOR UNION MEMBERS LOOKING TO LEARN
Posted On: May 11, 2010
Please read below: Workshop for Union members that want to learn about Single Payer Healthcare. Anyone interested in attending this call cell 935-3445 or e-mail me firstname.lastname@example.org . Local will cover registration cost if anyone want to learn and attend with me. Need to learn about this.......
I wanted to make you aware of a workshop Rose Roach from the Ca. School Employees Association (CSEA), will be giving at the conference on Saturday. The title is: "Talking to union members about single payer healthcare." She will show how it's possible to win even the most conservative members to support an issue they normally would oppose for philosophical reasons. I think these lessons can be applied to most issues our members are either unfamiliar with or resistant to for various reasons.
I hope some members of your local will be able to join you this Saturday for the conference. I know Saturdays are tough - yard work, shopping, clean-up, etc. but this is a rare opportunity to learn from a union that puts grassroots activism at the core of its efforts.
Thanks for your support.
