Meet Teacher Strikers & Reformers at the TDU Convention

At the TDU Convention, you'll hear first-hand from union Teachers' activists about the key organizing lessons from the strikes and innovative ways workers are uniting to confront attacks on labor and public services.

Earlier this year, teachers across the country launched a wave of strikes, walkouts, sickouts and rallies that won big gains, galvanized members, and showed how strikes can win.

Much of the initiative and organizing of the strikes did not come from union leaderships, but from TDU-like rank-and-file networks.
