Chicago Tech Workers Coalition
Who We Are:
We are a coalition of workers in and around the tech industry, labor organizers, community organizers, and friends located within the Chicagoland area.
What We Do:
We held tech circles which were groups for workers to explore issues in the workplace, community, and industry and how tech workers can organize for power. Sadly due to COVID-19 and coordinator exhaustion, we were unable to organize in 2020, but we are hoping to start again soon.
How We Work:
We’re a democratically structured, all-volunteer, and worker-led organization. Prior to COVID-19, membership consisted of attending meetings in person and working on the various projects that people are interested in.
In the near future we plan to re-establish a coordinating committee to help plan events and campaigns for late 2020 and beyond.
