Our organizing model is heavily worker led, which requires education, discipline, and practice.
To achieve this, worker organizers must learn the basics of what unions are, their legal rights, the organizing process, crafting their own union vision, having organizing conversations with coworkers, building the structure of their union, and much more.
The CODE Organizer Training program is designed to teach worker organizers these fundamental skills so they can take agency at work into their own hands.
Staff and worker organizers co-teach two public classes:
- Class 1: Intro to Unions and Organizing (every week)
- Class 2: Building the Organizing Committee (every other week)
Worker organizers get further training as they work with CODE staff over the course of their specific union campaign around direct action, strategy & tactics, campaign messaging, political education, and more.
