Last month over 4,000 rank and file labor activists met in Chicago for the biannual Labor Notes Conference. There were 250 workshops teaching how to make good trouble, plenaries with luminaries like Amazon’s Chris Smalls, the new Teamster President Sean O’Brien, and even Bernie Sanders made an appearance. The Heartland Labor Forum was there. We even got an award. We’ll highlight the excitement, activities, and solidarity that made this year’s event the most successful ever! Also it’s Washington Window on Workers with Mark Gruenberg.
