Description

Focusing on workers being organized in union campaigns, this book aims to demonstrate how different levels of participation - from simple "participatory democracy" to worker activism - influence the ultimate success or failure of the campaign.

Table of Contents

Shows how different levels of worker participation during a union organizing campaign influence the perceptions and actions of those same workers after the campaign ends, and, thereby, the long-term effectiveness and success of the organizing effort. Drawing on historical and current examples, the author analyzes the political and economic contexts within which today's unions are organizing, including a detailed examination of the impact of the Wagner Act.
