On Wednesday, August 8 from 9:05-9:25am (CDT), I’ll be doing a show which I think may be a little groundbreaking.
My guest will be Baber Mohammed, a labor organizer for the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), Local 1 in Houston.
Progressives, Democrats and various pro-labor groups and individuals can often be heard waxing eloquently about all the benefits which organized labor has brought to the American workforce, both union and non-union. One topic rarely discussed in media is, how do you start to unionize? Where does a person or small group of workers begin?
This will be the topic for a show which I’m entitling “Unionizing For Dummies™ (Part 1)”. Baber and I will be discussing some of the most basic “‘how-to’s” of unionizing, starting with the question, “Where do I begin??”
It is my hope that this will be the first in a series of “Unionizing For Dummies™” episodes.
You will be able to listen live in Houston on 90.1 FM, or online here.
The show will also be added to the Thinkwing Radio blog on the archive page shortly after it becomes available.
