An Evening Discussion I Enjoyed with the Toronto Workers Assembly

This is a four part interview that was filmed in Toronto, Canada during late February, 2014. The interview was conducted in the local Steelworkers Hall and sponsored by the Greater Toronto Workers Assembly, a smart group of trade unionists who meet together in a class-based, community rooted assembly to develop a progressive labor movement, one that can overcome existing union stagnation. Part 1 is an introduction by a terrific organizer named Sarah Declerk who works with the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) and also features a poem by Greg Shotwell. The interview doesn’t begin until part 2 (directly below). Part 2 & part 3 make up the bulk of the interview and part 4 is the Q & A section.
