The AFFI is pleased to announce another educational opportunity that you can participate in virtually from the comfort of your own home or the firehouse! We are excited to again collaborate with the University of Illinois Labor and Employment School to present: “Labor and Politics in America”
This webinar will feature University of Illinois, Director of Labor Education Professor Bob Bruno as he will discuss:
Labor unions are important political actors. Unions are one of the few political vehicles for workers to express their concerns about government. This webinar addresses how organized labor contributes to the vibrancy of democracy by mobilizing their members to participate in the political process. Unions have been active agents for social justice and have been the most powerful force in the passage of some of the most significant social programs in the history of the nation. This webinar will also examine the forces that have influenced how union members have acted politically and the impact labor unions have had on American elections.
The AFFI will present this webinar on two different dates to give you the flexibility you need to attend:
Tuesday, October 20th 2020 – 10am to Noon
Thursday, October 22nd 2020 – 10am to Noon
