The 2023 NSO Winter Advocacy Retreat is the time to gain knowledge and enhance your skills necessary to endure the many attacks that are launched against your fellow union members and to strengthen your union. Please join us in San Diego for this great experience where you’ll have the opportunity to network, learn, participate and to have fun doing it! 

Despite the growth of unions and public support for them across the country, NSO members continue to face attacks on their wages, hours, and terms and conditions of employment, including retirement, pension benefits, health insurance and, in some cases, even their very jobs. NSO affiliates and members more than ever need to stand up for their rights and the rights of their union siblings and not give up the fight. The NSO Winter Advocacy Retreat (“WAR College”) provides three days of top-notch training to give advocates the information and skills needed to lead, promote, secure, and defend the hard-earned rights of its affiliates and members.  WAR College also provides much-needed training for leaders and aspiring leaders alike to find ways to grow their affiliates into strong, vibrant members of the labor movement.
