At this meeting we will officially hold our Focus Industry Debate!
Our meeting in August regarding the NYC-DSA Rank & File Resolution kickstarted the process of selecting strategic unionized industries for plugging a critical mass off DSA activists into.
Labor Branch members submitted their proposals for what industries and unions to prioritize when rolling out the resolution, with the linked criteria in mind.
We extended our November 8th proposal deadline a couple of days, and received a total of 10 proposals:
-NYC Public Sector, DC37 AFSCME
-Transit Workers, MTA/TWU Local 100
-Education, Public Schools/UFT
-Hotel Trades Council
-Construction, Building Trades/Carpenters
-Construction, Building Trades/IBEW & NYCDCC
-PSC-CUNY / AFT 2334
The Labor Branch OC folks would recommend that you take a peek at what these industries have been facing when they run up against capitalists so that you are prepared to give succinct but thorough articulations for the industries you believe the LB should focus on!
