For more than 30 years, the AFL-CIO Organizing Institute (OI) has been at the heart of where members and staff organizers come together to sharpen their skills, share experiences, and reinforce best practices to empower working people to win respect and dignity on the job through forming a union.
Even during a pandemic, working people are still under assault across the country. Although the landscape of how we organize may be shifting due to COVID-19, the core principles for workers to build power in our workplaces remain the same.
The mission of the OI remains the same: to tool up organizers to teach working people to collectively go on the offensive and win respect, dignity and a voice through forming a union in our workplaces.
OI TRAININGS ARE NOW DIGITAL AND AT NO COST
We are now offering condensed versions of all OI trainings. It’s all online, and it’s all at no cost.
Note: Consistent with past practice, union members will not be able to sponsor themselves for any OI trainings. Approval by a supervisor or elected officer is required to attend any training.
