Maria Somma, Organizing Coordinator for the USW Health Care Workers Council, detailed employer efforts to deskill a profession through delegation and automation.
The theme of deskilling resonated, both as a shared concern with professional associations and a threat to the public safety.

Solar workers "face the exact same challenges all non-union workers face," says Maria Somma, organizing director for the Steelworkers.
Because the union has yet to take any of its campaigns public, Somma declined to give specifics. But organizing efforts in the renewables industry face three major challenges: resistance from solar companies and other employers, a geographically diffuse work force, and jobs that are especially vulnerable to outsourcing and relocation. "An employer is an employer, whether they're an environmentally friendly employer or a polluter," says Somma. She says the Steelworkers have already seen renewables companies roll out the kind of intimidation standard for the private sector in response to union organizing: captive audience meetings, threats of ring and contracts with a slew of anti-union consultants. Employers can also leverage the threat of outsourcing. "Importing a massive, massive heavy wind turbine from China is still cheaper than producing it in the United States," laments Somma. "If they want ... public money," says Somma, "these employers should provide good-paying jobs and those employees need to be able to form a union." Despite the challenges, Kurimski and Somma are optimistic about moving toward an economy that is good for both workers and the environment.
