2022 Harvard Trade Union Workshops


Wednesday, March 16, 2022 (All day) to Thursday, March 24, 2022 (All day)


Online on Zoom

Unfortunately, the Covid crisis is not over. We regret that a variety of obstacles blocked us from carrying out the residential Trade Union Program at Harvard this year. We had hoped and began to plan for the program, but it has turned out not to be feasible. Nevertheless, in our effort to continue to support and educate the labor community, we will hold a new set of online workshops providing potent ideas and compelling visions for revitalizing unions and democracy.

The theme for this year’s online workshop is “Democracy Under Attack: What should unions do?” The workshop will look into the current crisis of democracy and the ways that the labor movement can improve prospects for its members and the broader working class. The topics will be different from last year's workshop, so if you attended last year, you can attend again this year without fear of repeating information or being bored.


Dates and Times

The workshops consist of 15 90-minute sessions over five days, on two consecutive Wednesdays, Thursdays and a Friday. The workshop will be given on March 16, 17, 18, 23, 24, 2022. The workshops will be held between 3-8:30 pm EST. We have chosen late afternoon to facilitate the fullest participation possible for our friends in different time zones.


Tuition for the workshops is $1000 (which includes all five days). We offer an early registration discount -- register by January 31, 2022, tuition is reduced to $800. We also offer a group discount -- any organization that registers five participants can include a sixth participant for free. Only one discount can be used at a time. The final registration deadline is March 1, 2022.
