Not Your Father's Union Movement: Inside the AFL-CIO Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

After a long period of quiescence, the US union movement is once more making waves. Under a new leadership the AFL-CIO has won dramatic victories for a minimum wage and against fast-track, mounted high-profile interventions in Congressional elections, extended its international links and, above all, directed greater resources to grassroots recruitment. And, as this book reveals, that’s only the beginning ...

These pages bring together a group of writers, many directly involved in the AFL-CIO, who describe in detail the work now underway to rebuild the movement. Together they provide an indispensable guide for union members, students and teachers, and all those interested in progressive social change America today.

Contributors: Jo-Ann Mort, Harold Meyerson, Richard Bensinger, Karen Nussbaum, Steve Rosenthal, Kelly Candaele, Jerry Hudson, Amy Dean, Hector Figueroa, Barbara Shaillor, Guy Molyneux, David Kusnet, Mark Baldwin, David Glenn, Matt Witt, Rand Wilson, Juan Gonzalez and Noel Beasley.

Synopsis:

An indispensable guide for anyone who is a union member or who cares about social change, this book covers the seismic shift that occurred inside the U.S. trade union movement in 1994 when the "New Voice" campaign swept a new leadership into the AFL-CIO.
