In recent years, new Americans have become the bedrock of labor union membership. These members are essentially your readers. And soon, the de Blasio administration is set to begin negotiations with municipal unions whose contracts expired long ago. So how do you cover labor issues and what exactly do your readers need to know about their unions? Please join us for a conversation with labor leaders and journalists about labor’s continuing role to empower new Americans.
Food and drinks will be served
