IAM Organizing Department Featured on ‘Power at Work’ Blogcast 

IAM Assistant Organizing Director Juan Eldridge recently joined Burnes Center Senior Fellow Seth Harris, Sarah Bright, Organizing Director at SEIU 925, and Indira Mohan, Associate Director of Organizing at AFL-CIO/AFSCME DC 37, to talk about how to become a union organizer, why union activism is increasing, and how to confront employer opposition to worker organizing.

When asked why he became an organizer, Juan reflected on his earliest memories of his father, the late retired IAM Aerospace Coordinator Ron Eldridge and his activism in the labor union movement. This upbringing instilled a strong sense of social justice and a desire to fight for what’s right.
