Agenda for first Tech Workers Coalition Berlin meeting

Tech Workers Coalition

Tech Workers Coalition Berlin

Tech Workers have a lot of potential power to change society. Anyone who identifies as a tech worker and is interested in learning how to build collective power or get involved in a campaign is welcome. Tech Workers are currently organising against gender pay gaps, workplace harassment, surveillance technologies, amongst other things. This document is an agenda item for the first meeting of Tech Workers Coalition Berlin.

A panel about Tech Workers Movement was held earlier this month 10 June 2019 at Aquarium Am Südblock, featuring Logic Magazine co-founders Ben Tarnoff and Moira Weigel. Ben, who is also an organiser of the Boston chapter, will be present during the meeting. You can click to watch the video or listen for audio.
