2016 Labor Notes Conference, April 1-3 in Chicago

Get in touch with the labor movement’s fighting spirit—meet us in Chicago!

Labor Notes Conferences are the biggest gatherings out there of grassroots union activists, worker center leaders, and all-around troublemakers. Don’t miss a weekend of inspiration, education, and agitation.

  • Join thousands of union members, officers, and labor activists who are on the front lines in our workplaces and our communities, organizing new workers and agitating together. Meet troublemakers from around the country and around the world.
  • More than 100 meetings and workshops include creative organizing tactics, beating apathy, running for local union office, winning contract campaigns, bargaining over technology, understanding the economy, life after “right to work,” and reviving the strike.
  • Organize with others in your union, industry, or campaign. Face-to-face meetings to share tactics and swap notes are the heart of the Labor Notes Conference. Join an existing industry, union, or caucus meeting—or contact us to set one up.



Workshops and meetings begin at 1 p.m. Friday, April 1, and end at 3 p.m. Sunday, April 3.
