Collective Bargaining Education Project
In the morning, when the students arrive, they know little or nothing about unions and collective bargaining. At the end of the day, they can tell you what the union is — and they like the idea. Based on the popular education techniques of Paolo Freire, the CBEP provides a range of labor history and contemporary union organizing and collective bargaining role plays for the high school classroom. CBEP can also organize a one-day Institute for 100 students, as well as teacher in-services.
