We want all UCW members to be effective organization builders. Our 2-part Organizing Basics series will help you and your coworkers hit the ground running to grow your local.

Part 1: Organizing Conversation Training - how do you move someone from believing unionizing is illegal, to saying yes to join? We'll cover this common dilemma and prepare you to talk about your organizing in your own words.
