Reportback from Our First Tech Worker Meetup
The first meeting of the Tech Worker Meetup subgroup of the Labor Working Group was attended by nearly 30 tech workers from a variety of backgrounds, from prospective members to organizers from the Alphabet Workers Union. We discussed the recent turmoil in the tech industry and the growing opportunity for new organizing in tech. Stop by #tech-talk in the DSA SF Slack or contact Jason Prado at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are a tech worker interested in joining the group. The next meetup will be scheduled for the end of May.
