2019 LaborFest | July 2-31
The destruction of our public services and privatization of public education is a serious issue for all working people. The US Post Office, Social Security, the FAA, NRC, and many other Federal and State agencies are threatened with privatization and outsourcing.
In San Francisco, the privatization of SF City jobs and the outsourcing of public jobs at UCSF and UC is an ongoing battle for workers and their unions.
This conference will discuss how workers from all public service unions can come together for education and a national political education campaign to stop privatization and outsourcing.
This is not just a US issue but a critical issue as well for working people throughout the world. The world corporate economic institutions, including the IMF and World Bank, both controlled by the US government, have demanded that countries privatize their public services and deregulate their economies in order to get loans.
This conference will have reports on privatization and outsourcing in San Francisco, the US, and around the world.
