Wednesday, Feb. 19th Occupy Corvallis Reading Group

Wednesday, Feb. 19th Occupy Reading Group meeting

Meeting Time & Place:  6:00 pm, 104 Hovland Hall (OSU campus)

Here are a couple of articles that delve into the recent waves of labor organizing and activism in the low-wage, private sector.  Both articles address how this moment resonates and doesn’t with more ‘traditional’ labor unionism and what that might mean.  Lots of food for thought here.  All are welcome to join in the conversation.  See you there?

Directions to Hovland Hall below.  Be aware there is a lot of construction going on, so parking behind the building is not available right now. If you are arriving by car, the parking lost next to the Linus Pauling Science Center is likely the closest option.
