OPEN FORUM ON THE AAA AND LABOR RELATIONS

Hyatt Regency Atlanta 265 Peachtree Street North East (6 blocks
from the AAA meeting hotel)

Friday, December 17, 2004 5:00-7:30 PM

SCA has organized this forum in order to promote discussion
about current struggles involving workers in the hotel and
restaurant industry and, specifically, about how professional
groups such as the American Anthropological Association might
play an active role in solidarity with hotel and restaurant
workers. The forum is intended to be forward-looking and
practical. Discussion topics will include the strategies of
organized labor; proposals for alternate meeting sites and
structures; and the kinds of plans AAA is making for future
meetings.
