2018 United Students Against Sweatshops (USAS) National Conference
February 23 - February 24
This conference will be held at Rutgers University-New Brunswick. Rutgers is a massive public university and the largest employer in New Brunswick, which currently has a poverty rate double the New Jersey state average. Rutgers USAS is currently in our second year running the #Fightfor15 for all Rutgers workers. Community groups and unions around the state believe the RUSAS campaign will have a serious ripple effect on New Jersey’s #Fightfor15. Join this conference to continue building a national movement for worker and student power.
Working alongside unions on your campus? Invite them to join us too. This year, our USAS National Conference will be coinciding with the Bargaining for the Common Good in Higher Ed Convening. This is an incredible opportunity for us to come together around the unique challenges workers and students are facing on our campuses.
