Update from Dan Martin on Organizing

The months of May and June are transition months for District Council 7 organizing. We are in the process of developing a well-rounded and structured strategy going forward.

With the loss of Steve Schreiner as the Director of Organizing, we will continue to build off of what was accomplished. As the new Director of Organizing, I will be using my nearly ten years of experience and knowledge to continue the work that Steve was doing. We will be keeping pressure on specific developers, non-union contractors and end users. We will identify these projects by jobsite visits to check the awarded contractors and by communicating with their employees. Top-down organizing will be an intricate part of our strategy along with consistent communication with owners, developers, contractors, sub-contractors and end users prior to jobs being awarded. Expect to see more synergy between departments at the Council. We will all work together.

To advance our organizing efforts, we will be creating a voluntary DC7 organizing committee. This committee will be made up of union members and will cover all topics related to organizing. The organizing committee will develop and implement strategies for bottom-up campaigns and community activism. If interested, please contact Daniel Martin at 920-238-7115.
