🌹 TONIGHT: Workplace Roundtable 🌹

Join ATL DSA's labor committee for an in-person workplace roundtable at 711 Catherine St SW Monday, June 12th from 7:00-9:00 PM.

This roundtable will be an informal discussion on workplace organizing strategies, and what challenges people are facing in their own workplaces. Be prepared to introduce yourself, and share your experiences and advice with comrades on having workplace organizing conversations, strategies, and more! This event is open to members and non-members of all levels of experience!

This month, we will review Lesson 1 of Secrets of a Successful Organizer, which you can purchase at your next DSA event for $15.


📕 Book Club 📕

Atlanta DSA's Book Club explores a range of topics in socialist theory. We discuss big picture ideas about history, economics, and politics.

We encourage everyone to read ahead of time, but all are welcome to join the discussion!

⚡UPS Strike Ready Live Panel!⚡

UPS Teamsters all across the country are gearing up to fight for better pay and treatment on the job when their contract expires on August 1, 2023. If the company doesn’t respond to workers’ demands, they’ll prepare to launch the largest strike in decades. We are calling all Atlanta workers to stand in solidarity with UPS Teamsters this Summer when and if they decide to strike. It’s time to show UPS – when we fight, we win!


Join ATL DSA's Labor Committee and members of UPS Teamsters to learn about their upcoming contract negotiations and what the community can do to support their fight. A Zoom link will be emailed to folks who RSVP. See you then!


✈️Tell Delta Air Lines to Stop Union-Busting Workers✈️

Delta Air Lines has been caught pouring tens of millions of dollars into anti-unionization efforts, producing appalling flyers encouraging employees to buy video games instead of joining a union, and maintaining a culture of intimidation through emails, videos, meetings, and signs degrading those who support unions. Delta's major shareholder meeting on June 15, 2023 is a chance for CEO Ed Bastian, chairman Frank Blake, Vanguard Group, BlackRock, Capital World Investors, and other shareholders to commit to treating 50,000 workers with respect.


A shareholder resolution known as Proposal 6 requests that Delta Air Lines adopt a "Freedom of Association and Collective Bargaining Policy" so workers can advocate for safety, paid sick and family leave, and fair compensation. Add your name to tell Delta shareholders to vote FOR Proposal 6.


🍽 2023 Douglas Debs Dinner 🍽

Labor Survey promo image

Each year since our Atlanta DSA chapter formed in 2006–except for a two-year pandemic gap–we have invited Atlanta’s progressive community to our Douglass-Debs awards dinner, to help us honor outstanding role models and leaders, celebrate our accomplishments during the previous year, and enjoy an evening of comradeship. Last year’s dinner resumed this tradition with great success


In keeping with our tribute to organized labor, we will host the 2023 Douglass-Debs Dinner in the IBEW Hall Auditorium at 153 Richardson Street SW in downtown Atlanta on Friday, August 26, 2023.


The dinner is a great opportunity to meet with other community activists and hear from inspiring speakers. Ticket sales and patron contributions will raise funds for our coalition partners, local community organizing, labor union strike support. Reduced-cost tickets will be available for students and other low-income comrades. For more information contact us at [email protected]. We look forward to seeing you there!


🎨 ATLDSA T-Shirt Contest 🎨

Your art deserves to be seen by more people, and should serve a purpose. Does that sound like you? Make a submission to the Atlanta DSA T-Shirt contest and make it a reality! Help Atlanta organizers rep justice, democratic socialism, and good trouble wherever we go. Submissions can be submitted at here and are due by June 15th. If you have questions, get in touch!

At the 2022 Atlanta DSA Chapter Convention, members decided to prioritize our Chapter's labor work. We are building the labor movement by showing up for workers on the picket line, building relationships with rank-and-file union members, and helping our own members organize their workplaces.


But to do this, we need your help! Fill out our 2023 Labor Survey to tell us about yourself, your workplace, and the ways you'd like to help get involved in our work.
