Labor Law for the Rank & Filer: Building Solidarity While Staying Clear of the Law


Labor Law for the Rank & Filer: Building Solidarity While Staying Clear of the Law Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Blending cutting-edge legal strategies for winning justice at work with a theory of dramatic, bottom-up social change, this practical guide to workers rights aims to make work better while reinvigorating the labor movement. A powerful organization model called “solidarity unionism” is explained, showing how the labor force can avoid the pitfalls of the legal system and utilize direct action to win fair rights. The new edition includes new cases governing fundamental labor rights and can be used not only by union workers, but can serve as a guerrilla legal handbook for any employee in this unstable economy.
