  • United Students Against Sweatshops National Conference

    11 January 2016


    It’s time to join with workers to unite against corporate greed! This past year we’ve seen strong fights and exciting victories. Student workers in Seattle won $15, adjunct professors have been organizing for fair pay and respect, hundreds of fast food workers have been taking to the streets, and communities have been mobilizing around the country against police brutality. This February, hundreds of students from across the nation are coming together at this pivotal moment in history to build a stronger movement for justice on campus.

    United Students Against Sweatshops (USAS) is a national student-led movement with over 150 locals. We campaign in solidarity with workers on our campuses and in factories abroad, using our leverage as students to win historic victories over multinational corporations. Now we want you to join us!

    Register for the National Conference and be a part of building a stronger movement of students and workers fighting for justice!

    This year we’ll gather on February 26 and 27. We voted to hold our conference at the University of Pittsburgh. The “Steel City” is home to the most bridges of any city in the world, the largest annual Labor Day parade in the US, and even the Steelers — named for the United Steelworkers, who’ve made Pittsburgh a union town since 1936. Workers in Pittsburgh just won paid sick days, and they’re pushing forward in their Fight For 15. At the University, adjuncts are demanding respect in the workplace, and they need students like us to have their backs.

    The 2016 National Conference is a unique chance to gather with hundreds of students committed to taking back our universities and demanding respect for workers and affordable quality education for all. At the conference, you will:

    • Learn how to organize National USAS campaigns in solidarity with workers on our campuses, in our communities, and who sew our schools’ apparel in factories abroad
    • Sharpen your organizing skills and get new ideas for your local group with workshops and trainings lead by veteran student and labor organizers.
    • Join teams of students already working to build our student-labor movement, share experiences with organizers from all walks of life, and make our work more dynamic, creative and fun.
    • Be part of a powerful, nationally-coordinated student movement that fights for justice, and wins!

    Click here to register now, and start planning your group’s travel to Pittsburgh!

    19 years after students formed USAS to counter the power of multinational corporations and corporate-friendly college administrators, we are celebrating our major student-worker victories, past, present, and future. We know that when we organize in solidarity with workers producing our clothes, taking care of our campuses, and fighting for education justice, we are stronger together.

    Will you join us to build a student movement to stop sweatshop universities? Whether you’re totally new to activism, or have some experience under your belt, register now and we’ll send you more information on how you can get involved!
