About the Labor Radio Podcast Network

 

Working people are raising their voices more each day, demanding better treatment from their workplaces and their elected officials.

While labor columnists at daily newspapers have become a dying breed and union news has largely been sidelined within traditional print and televisual media, affordable and easy-to-use recording and editing technologies allow workers, union members, and activists to create their own alternative means of communication.

Labor SHIFT

 

“Labor Shift” is the Coalition of Black Trade Unionists’ podcast/web series. It is CBTU’s response to the moment we find ourselves in. A time when we are under siege from all sides – a killer virus, a deranged president, a tanking economy, and white racism that takes black lives, whether jogging or sleeping.

“Labor Shift” is a place where WE can engage in respectful debates, while supporting each other in our local social justice work. That means we won’t bite our tongue or dodge the difficult conversations that America, and the labor movement, need to be having. There is no other podcast that features progressive black voices in the labor movement.
