Our next Chicago IWW meeting is tomorrow, Sunday September 13th from 11:30am to 2:00pm at Powell’s Books at 1218 S Halsted!
Powell’s is located close to the UIC campus, steps away from the 16/18-18th Street Bus and 8/Halsted St Bus, a short walk from the Blue Line UIC-Halsted stop (when you get off, walk about 4 blocks south on Halsted). Anyone taking Metra downtown to union station can easily walk about 7 minutes west to Halsted and take the bus south from there. If anyone needs more help with directions, feel free to ask.
There will be signs posted on the front door, but you can find the meeting room by travelling through the front doors, straight to the back, and turning right to the double doors.
Please let us know if you have any transit or other accessibility concerns so we can help ensure you are able to attend.
Some fellow workers will be using Google Hangouts to make telecommuting to the meeting possible. If anyone in would like to be included in this call, please let us know! We’re happy to help make it as easy for as many of you to participate as possible, though we strongly encourage anyone who is able to be physically present for face-to-face discussion free of technical difficulties to do so.
Remember, ALL WORKERS ARE WELCOME to attend and have voice during the meeting this means unemployed folks and students too!), but ONLY IWW members in good standing (paid dues for July or later) will be able to vote or make motions during the meeting.
If any IWW members have any Items of New Business (motions/ proposals), suggestions for Order of the Day, Reports, Items of Good and Welfare, or anything else to add to the agenda, please send them now and we will update the agenda accordingly! If you are unable to send your additions to the agenda ahead of time, please write them down before the meeting. This ensures accurate recording and helps with issues of accessibility.
As always, please speak up if you have any additional questions or concerns and we will do my best to answer ASAP!
You can contact the Chair of the Meeting, Fellow Worker Alison, at 847-707-5181 or Alisonmarie2214@gmail.com if you need any assistance.
