Free Webinar: Mobilizing Allies for Union Negotiations in Libraries, hosted by Emily Drabinski

UC-AFT Librarians may be interested in attending an upcoming free webinar given by Emily Drabinski, Coordinator of Library Instruction at LIU Brooklyn.

Here’s more about Emily and her presentation, from EveryLibrary:

Making political change requires mobilizing people in order to push for action. In 2016, Emily Drabinski was on the front lines of an organizing effort for a fair labor contract at LIU Brooklyn. When negotiations broke down between the union and the University, faculty and staff were locked out of their jobs. Drabinski will share concrete strategies for building power, developing and maintaining lists, assessing allies, and holding organizing conversations in a free TPL Webinar “An Organizer’s Tale: LIU Brooklyn’s Lockout and Union Contract Negotiation” on Wednesday, April 11 2018 at 1pm Central.

Drabinski is Coordinator of Library Instruction at Long Island University, Brooklyn, and is a part-time faculty member at Pratt Institute’s School of Information. She is a 2014 LJ Mover & Shaker and was named a “100 Top Influencer” by Brooklyn Magazine in 20017.  You can read Drabinski’s essay “An Organizer’s Tale…” before the webinar on The Political Librarian, EveryLibrary’s open access journal about public policy and tax policy issues in libraries.
