Throughout the years, the Guild has adapted its course offerings as the needs of students and faculty have changed. In light of the unfolding Covid-19 pandemic, labor education is as important as ever. We are planning virtual courses, workshops, and discussions that are of particular relevance for today’s current events. The Guild maintains its commitment to offering labor education through the guild school and is excited to announce that we will be offering online classes for the fall of 2020. We are working with our talented faculty to develop engaging and informative virtual learning opportunities. Please continue to check-in for the latest updates throughout this summer. We are strongest when we stand together, now and always!
