Talking Union is a podcast produced by United Campus Workers of Virginia. Our organizing model is all about challenging the idea that different workers at the university ought to remain separate, and instead coming together to build power for all workers. This podcast aims to demonstrate the principle of “wall-to-wall” organizing in practice by platforming the diverse voices that make up our organization. It’s also a way of reconstructing the norms of our workplace, and doing so intentionally, with our collective aims bringing us together instead of keeping us apart. So, on this show, you’ll hear workers from different universities, and from different parts of those universities. There’s no interviewer, and no host. Instead, you’ll hear two people in conversation, talking about their experiences in their own words. Unions are their members, and our goal is to make ourselves heard.
