Publisher Comments:

During the 1960s and 1970s, teachers, sanitation workers and many other public employees rose up to demand collective bargaining rights in one of the greatest upsurges in labor history. These workers were able to transform the nature of public employment, winning union recognition for millions and ultimately forcing reluctant politicians to pass laws allowing for collective bargaining and even the right to strike. Strike Back uncovers this history of militancy to provide tactics for a new generation of public employees facing unprecedented attacks on their labor rights.

Synopsis:

How public employees can use lesson's from labor's militant past to reignite public sector unionism

tcfire49, April 27, 2014 (view all comments by tcfire49)
Being a Public Sector Union employee who is not allowed to strike, I don't know if there is relevance to our job situation. I have been involved in organizing and been President of a local for 14 years, currently unpaid employee while they drag out my disability hearing for 4 years.

Is there anything of relevance to me and my brothers and sisters. I am still involved with our local and we are 4 months now without a contract, and this is nothing new. We went 5 years of arbitration for our 1st contract. Tired of the games.
