From: Richard Moser email@example.com Subject: Attention Organizers! A practical theory of Organizing on New Unionism Website To: "Rich Moser" firstname.lastname@example.org Date: Friday, December 11, 2009, 10:41 AM
Are you an activist or an organizer, or aspire to be one? What is organizing really about? In a new essay, "Organizing: the Arts and Sciences," author and activist Richard Moser draws on 35 years experience in labor and social movements to craft a practical theory of organizing. The essay is easily accessible on the New Unionism website, blog and newsletter. Visit the website at: http://www.newunionism.net/ To subscribe to the newsletter just email the word SUBSCRIBE to email@example.com or else put your email address in "email monthly news" on the homepage. Moser discusses ideas largely overlooked during the recent debate about the US labor movement. “Organizing: the Arts and Sciences” goes beyond mere criticism to address the challenges of organizing by presenting useful concepts regarding method, principle, and rhetorical strategy. “Organizing” sets the historical context for current labor activism, investigates the organizational culture of unions, and explores the culture of organizing. Although the essay is focused on labor much of it will resonate with activists and organizers involved in other social movements for peace and justice. While you are reading the essay please take a good look at New Unionism. New Unionism is unique in the labour movement in that it is a global principles-based membership network. New Unionism wants to make change and set agendas, rather than just reacting. Those who join the network subscribe to four key principles: *organizing *workplace democracy *internationalism *creativity Beyond these principles we have no formal structure, officers, affiliations, policies, or links with any other group or organization. New Unionism does however have a fascinating website; blog and periodic newsletter chock full of creative and insightful writing. New Unionism brings activists onto the global stage to share ideas and experience. New Unionism is a free space where activists, organizers and working people can discuss and debate the big questions and burning issues. Read “Organizing: the Arts and Sciences” and join New Unionism. Feel free to circulate this announcement.
