Smash The Two-Gate!
Learn the history of anti-labor law Taft-Hartley, the two-gate system and historical and current resistance to it from a rank and file perspective.
Presented by United Rank and File

San Francisco is a union town? As the beacon of union power in the region, San Francisco is at a crossroads. There are many non-union contractors making inroads into traditionally unionized construction job sites. These contractors are using the “two-gate” system, derived from the 1947 anti-labor law Taft-Hartley to break unions by destroying solidarity between the trades.

Join United Rank and File in learning the history of this anti-labor law, how it is applied and how it creates unfair labor conditions for all workers, both union and non-union. We will also discuss the history of resistance to the two-gate system and current resistance to it focusing on the city of San Francisco. There will be a presentation followed by a discussion.

United Rank and File is a group of rank and file building trades members joining in solidarity in order to take direct action opposing anti-worker systems, starting with the two-gate system.
