Annual Policy Briefing of the Working Group on Labor and Community Partnerships
Please join us for a timely conversation about opportunities to advance economic justice and security for all.
April 23 – 24, 2015
Public Welfare Foundation Washington, DC
What were the policy wins and losses in the last year for working people? What are the campaigns for reform getting under way, and what are the threats to workers’ rights in the offing? How should labor policy respond to widespread economic and industrial shifts? Join us for the annual policy briefing of NFG's Working Group on Labor and Community Partnerships.
Program highlights include:
- Innovative enforcement strategies around minimum wage, overtime, health and safety, and paid sick leave protections.
- Immigration policy implementation: how worker organizations are supporting workers and working families.
- Opposition threats: how social justice organizations can prepare for and protect themselves against potential attacks.
