New Crises, New Agendas
Save Jobs, Save the Planet
April 3-4, Kansas City
This conference has no corporate or major institutional sponsors. That’s why we must ask for a registration fee from participants to help pay for site rental, travel expenses for out of town speakers, a box lunch, and other amenities.
To help us plan room arrangements, lunches, packets, and to take care of up front expenses, we greatly appreciate advance registration.
Register by April 1 and your name will go in a drawing to win a free copy of The Man Who Hated Work and Loved Labor, Les Leopold's biography of the remarkable labor leader, the late Tony Mazzocchi.
We have established a sliding scale of fees:
•If you’re employed full-time in a decent paying job we ask that you pay forty dollars.
•If employed in a low wage full-time job twenty dollars.
•If you’re unemployed, work only part-time, a full-time student, or a retiree on fixed income, ten dollars.
•We will waive the fee for anyone on strike or locked out.
•Attendance for only one agenda point is ten dollars (sorry no lunch included in single session payment.)
No one will be turned away solely for lack of money.

Since we don't want to waste our limited resources on bank fees for a special account we offer two advance payment options:
•You can pay your fee through the PayPal button below (the account is listed to Bill Onasch, kclabor.org webmaster) by entering the appropriate amount.
•Or you can pay by check or money order, payable to: “KC Labor-Bill Onasch”
There are no union hotels in the Kansas City area. We have a very limited number of beds available in local homes for no charge. There are two low cost, two-star motels within walking distance of the conference site.
Getting to Kansas City
Kansas City is served by three Interstate highways–29, 35, 70–Amtrak, Jefferson and Greyhound buses, and all major airlines. If participants traveling by rail, bus, or air let us know your schedules well in advance we will try to assist in ground transportation on our end.
