Welcome to season 4 of Renoites! This week on the first episode of the new season, we welcome Mike Pilcher, President of the Northern Nevada Central Labor Council. Labor Day is coming up soon and Reno is holding a LaborFest event at Idlewild Park on September 5 (which of course is Labor Day) from 11-4.
In this episode, Mike and Conor discuss the goals and purpose of organized labor, what the central labor council does, the challenge of educating both workers and employers, the changing trends in unionization efforts over the years, the impact of the covid pandemic on worker power, and much much more!
