Worker’s Center

About us:

The Lansing Workers’ Center was created by a coalition of community activists, union members, and members of the NorthStar Center, to support workers in their daily struggles on the job and in the community.

Our mission:

The Lansing Workers’ Center is a vehicle for working people to develop a sense of their own power to reclaim their workplaces and communities, within the framework of a self-managed organization, based on direct democracy. The goal of the Lansing Workers’ Center is to build class consciousness and class solidarity as the means by which working people can improve their living conditions and gain a deeper understanding of the social system we live in.

The Low Down on Workers’ Centers:

Worker centers are independent community organizations that build collective support for individual workers (and groups of workers).  The impact of corruption is felt most by those pushed to the bottom of the system, and that is where workers centers can do the most good: among the lowest-waged, economically stressed working people, for whom wage theft and other abuses can mean catastrophe.

The Deal with Membership:

The Workers’ Center is a solidarity-based organization and membership is open to all. Membership dues are $4/month or $40/year paid on the first of every month. Scholarships are available for those interested in membership but unable to pay.

Become a Member:

* Volunteer at the center and come out to direct actions to support fellow workers!

* Get educated and engaged in local and global struggles!

* Learn skills to protect yourself and defend each other in the workplace!

* Fight wage theft with fellow workers!

* Build the labor movement!
