The Future of Work

The nature of work has changed greatly over the last decades, due both to new technologies and to changes in the organization of work and the workplace. Employers are turning more often to part-time or contingent workers and to contracting out in order to lower labor costs. The changes in jobs and workplaces are being made without input  from the people most affected: the workers. Labor Extension has developed a two-session interactive workshop that can help workers understand the forces behind the changes taking place and strategize ways to assert some control over them. The curriculum can be downloaded from this website here.

Or, contact the Labor Extension program to facilitate a version of the workshop expressly tailored to the situation facing your union or workplace.
