            Bill Barry was been the Director of Labor Studies for CCBC from 1997-2012, and maintained a program started in the 1970s by the Reverend Everett L. Miller, Sr. to help put the “move” back into the labor movement. The program offers an Associate Degree in Labor Studies, and is one of the very few in the United States which has not either become a research facility or been swallowed up into an “industrial relations” program.
           The program offers all of the basic union training courses, trying to answer the basic question: “How are workers trying to make their lives better?”
  The programs stresses worker self-reliance, and has a motto “Teaching Workers to Teach Themselves.”
Classes can be taught throughout the middle-Atlantic states, and on-line, using streaming video.
            Credit classes include

Grievance and Arbitration—how workers can enforce their union contracts
