Student Labor Dialogue Weekly Meetings

Wednesday, September 18, 2013

Come to our weekly meeting to learn about and be a part of labor actvism at Bard. 

What is the Student Labor Dialogue?
Over the years, the Student Labor Dialogue (SLD) has served many purposes in its relationship with workers on campus and involvement in workers rights campaigns across the country. At times, it has been simply a social forum for workers and students to meet and connect. At other times students and workers have rallied together for better wages and benefits with a good degree of success. In broader terms, the SLD is a forum for all issues of socio-economic class to be aired. For many issues which workers face, such as unaffordable health care and debt, are the same issues students face. Our contention is that, when workers and students work in solidarity, both parties gain power in the Bard community. 

Time: 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Location: Campus Center, Red Room 202
