The Labor Guild and its youth caucus are sponsoring a free, four-part “Young Worker Workshop Series” starting with a Feb. 11 event featuring Local 888’s chief of staff, Rand Wilson, and former director of field operations, Lisa Field.

“This series of talks is a great opportunity to meet other members and leaders from a variety of unions,” said Wilson. “I’m going to focus on the overall picture of what you need to know to be a good union leader. I’ll highlight how the Labor Guild’s classes are a great resource — and how they can be built upon.”

The Young Worker Series will be:

  • Feb 11: “Where To Go from Here—What You Can Do with Your Labor Education,” featuring Wilson and Field.
  • Feb 18: “Internal Organizing,” featuring Mike Vartabedian, International Association of Machinists Local 264, and Darlene Lombos, secretary treasurer, Greater Boston Labor Council
  • Feb 25: “Building Coalitions.”
  • Mar 3: “Anti-racism,” featuring state Rep. Liz Miranda and others.

Workshops will be held at Teamsters Local 25 in Charlestown from 5 to 8 p.m. Food will be provided. For more information on the series, visit
