Organizer Training 101

Do you want to form a union at your workplace for better conditions and respect on the job, but don’t know where to start?

The IWW’s Organizer Training (OT101) is there to demystify the union process by breaking it down into simple steps that anyone can follow. Using real world examples from past union drives, roleplays, and advice from longtime union organizers, we’ll help you develop a plan to fight and win together in your workplace.

Due to Covid restrictions, this training will be held online over our virtual meeting hall (BBB) on two Wednesday evenings and two Saturdays.

Each session is 3 hours long with breaks every hour. All sessions must be attended in order to pass the training. Once completed, you’ll be eligible to attend an OT102, as well as the Training4Trainers program should you wish to become a trainer yourself (and we hope you do!)

1st session: Wed Nov 17th 6pm-9pm
2nd session: Sat Nov 20th 1pm-4pm
3rd session: Wed Nov 24th 6pm-9pm
4th session: Sat Nov 27th 1pm-4pm

  • Laptop or desktop (no phones please) running Firefox or Chrome browser
  • Microphone and Webcam (headphones encouraged)
  • Pen and Notebook
  • Copy of the training booklet (email info@ottawaiww.org to request a printed copy)
