Labor School Class of 2013 shines

Students get an education inside the classroom and out

We had a great crew this year for Carolina Labor School, the Southeast’s premier union member education program held every summer on the campus of UNC Wilmington,¬†where the only prerequisite is a dedication to your union and a desire to be a better informed, more prepared warrior for working people.

Watch Labor School sing “Solidarity Forever”.

Members of the Class of 2013 came from all manner of unions – from communications workers to tobacco workers, from paper workers to bus drivers, chemical workers, and many others – for a week-long summer camp of sorts with expert classroom instruction and quality after class camaraderie.
