Labor Studies at City College This Fall


Members,

 The San Diego and Imperial Counties Labor Council has developed a great partnership with City College in recent years to teach labor studies classes for our members and the community at large.  It’s provided a great opportunity to educate San Diego about their rights at work and the rich history of the Labor Movement.  This fall Jim Miller will be teaching Labor and Politics on Tuesday nights, and Dovie King will be teaching Labor Law on Monday nights.  Anyone who hasn’t had the opportunity to learn from Jim and Dovie are definitely missing out, and this is a great opportunity to grow in the labor movement or get a first good introduction.

 It is also very important that we show broad interest in these classes if we want them to continue to be offered in the future.  This is an important part of building a stronger labor movement in the broader community and we should do our best to support it.  Click here: LS 108 and 102 flyer f13.pdf  for information about the classes.
