"A NEW GLOBAL LABOR MOVEMENT IS AWAKENING."

So writes historian Dr. Annelise Orleck in her most
recent book, in which she tells the stories of
activists in low-wage fields. From Walmart
workers to farmers, from the textile factories of
Bangladesh to McDonalds' around the world,
workers are coming together to challenge the
iniquities of a globalized economy.
Join the Merrimack Valley Central Labor Council
and the UMass Lowell Labor Education Program as
we welcome Dr. Orleck to Lowell. The evening
will include a light dinner and discussion with
respondents from the local labor movement, a
UML adjunct leader (UAW 1596) and an Aramark
worker (NEJB Unite Here. Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing.
