The cliché has it that those who don’t study the past are condemned to repeat the same mistakes. But what does that mean in practice? Are union victories—and failures—from earlier eras really relevant for workers right now? How can labor history be of value to activists engaged in current struggles? This slide presentation and workshop will touch on previous organizing efforts, ranging from Haymarket through the CIO era, to spark a discussion about how we should think about history, and how the past can help chart a path forward for labor today.
