Know Your Rights

The VWC's "Know Your Rights" workshop explores the history of labor rights in the U.S. and provides basic workers' rights information. In the workshop, we'll go through the 'Timeline of Workers' Rights' to better understand how rights have been won over time through collective struggle. Through group activities and popular education, the workshop develops an understanding of the purpose of unions and other forms of workplace organizing to improve rights on the job. The workshop also provides a basic primer on workplace rights in Vermont with time to dig deeper into specific questions and experiences of participants.

The "Know Your Rights" workshop can run from 45 minutes to 1-1/2 hours depending on the number of participants and amount of time for Q&A. To schedule a "Know Your Rights" workshop in your area, send an email to
