I have just come back from my graduation ceremony at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, with a Master’s of Science degree in Union Leadership and Administration. I studied through the university’s Labor Center, and here is their website: https://www.umass.edu/lrrc/ If you are a trade unionist, I encourage you to undergo this program; you will learn the history of the Labor movement, the place in the economy and society of workers’ organizations, and the law relating to workers. I believe in education as a form of personal and group empowerment.
This learning I have gives me the obligation to fight against the lies and propaganda emanating from the anti-worker plutocratic media and political machine. I and other labor scholars must stand up for the truth about our movement, and to tell what really goes on in the economy, the government, and our society.
