Strike Wave 2022 DSLC Steering Committee Slate
The Strike Wave Slate is a multi-tendency group of rank-and-file union members in DSA with the unifying belief that the working class must be organized and fight back in this political moment.
DSA must become an organization that can grow and support a fighting working class, which means that we must also be in and of the labor movement. Our platform lays out concrete steps that our organization can take right now, and our slate are committed organizers who will be able to carry out these tasks.
The guiding star of our organizing is building rank-and-file worker power. We believe that the following 3 campaigns offer the most feasible avenues for DSA to build material solidarity with the labor movement, connect the socialist movement with labor struggles, and will encourage DSA members to concentrate themselves in strategic industries as rank-and-file organizers.

Increase DSA chapter capacity nationwide to proactively support campaigns for strikes and other local labor struggles across the country, building links between socialist organizers and militant worker activists.
Prioritize rank-and-file organizing in the logistics sector due to the immense structural leverage logistics workers have in the economy, and growing opportunities for organizing the unorganized in this area.
Empower rank-and-file workers in the labor movement by supporting new organizing projects like EWOC, establishing nationwide industry networks, and creating new labor branches in DSA chapters.
