Organizing for Power (O4P) is a free online training and networking program for organizers worldwide.

More than 10,000 workers from 6 continents and 70 countries have joined O4P trainings in the past 18 months including many from Scotland.

This event is both an introduction to the course for those who might wish to join it and a great opportunity to hear from inspiring speakers as to why such trade union organsing is essential.

Organising for power

Workers Rising Everywhere is the fourth training in the O4P series led by labour organizer and educator Jane McAlevey, and hosted by the Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung.

This training series focuses on building large (super!) majorities in settings such as workplaces, unions, and housing complexes in order to win the toughest campaigns and organizing battles.

This training session is open to union organisers, officers, and lay reps. Community activist groups are welcome too.

This training features new trainers and inspiring campaign stories from around the world. Using mixed methodologies and small-group sessions, participants will focus on developing core organizing skills including: leader identification, 1-on-1 conversations, charting, and structure tests.

Sessions run from May 18 until June 22, once per week, always on Tuesdays and taking place twice daily for the global audience.
