Thu, Jun 26, 2014 at 06:00 PM
Join fellow activists for an international dialogue with visiting leaders of the Mexican labor movement.
Mexican workers have been at the forefront of the fight for decent pay and against ‘free trade’ austerity. Don’t miss this chance to share their experiences and put our own campaigns in an international perspective!
Frente Auténtico del Trabajo/Authentic Workers’ Front (FAT) is an independent federation of laborunions, worker owned cooperatives, and farmworker and community organizations. They are well known for promoting democracy in unions, and in all of Mexico. FAT represents workers in manufacturing, as well as transportation and the public sector, in more than half the states of Mexico. They also play aleading role in the fight against NAFTA and the Mexican government’s harsh austerity policies.
