International Workers Day (May Day) is a time for people to honor and extend the struggles of labor to protect its rights and defend social justice. The forum will cover topics such as race and racism in the workplace, "right to work" legislation and its important effects on labor organizing. How can we overcome inter-union turf wars and foster inter-union solidarity? How can students and alumni support union organizing on campus? What can we learn from past failures and successes?
