A labor journalist who writes from a fundamental commitment to the labor movement, Steve Early draws on forty years of personal experience for his new writing collection, Save Our Unions. The book visits strikes and picket-lines, conventions and funerals – all in the course of describing the challenges American workers face trying to organize a union, or democratize one, or negotiate a contract – while trying not to lose what they had in the past.
Ranging through strategies for organizing, health care reform, cross-border union campaigning, or politics less dependent on the Democratic Party, Early continually raises the question of what labor can do and should do in 2014.
