Organise Now! is a new worker-led campaign for mass organising of workplaces during a period of increased militancy and a growing cost of living crisis. Using the skills and experience of reps and activists across our movement, we aim to give support and help to kick start organising in your workplace.

The project connects workers who want support starting organising at work with experienced organisers.

This session launches Organise Now! with a panel discussion from Sarah Woolley (BFAWU), an organiser from Organise Now!, and EWOC US.
