The ATUI was excited to welcome prominent American union strategic campaigner and educator, Teresa Conrow, to Australia to conduct a special one-time-only masterclass on strategic campaigning.

Teresa has worked with unions throughout the world on global and local strategic organising campaigns for over 40 years. She is the author of numerous labour books, articles, and curricula, and is on the Advisory Committee of the UCLA Labor Center.

Participants had the opportunity to work closely with Teresa on applying learned skills to an existing or developing campaign, relative to their union, throughout the course of the week.
