About this Item

Large 8vo. 424 pages. First edition. SUBJECT (S) : Clothing workers Illinois Chicago; Arbitration, industrial Illinois Chicago; Illinois Chicago history. Hefty tome detailing this heavily (though not exclusively) Jewish & Italian Union's first 12 years--organizing, strikes, allies, etc. The union, officially founded in 1914, had its roots in the massive 1910 strike in Chicago (against Hart, Schaffner, & Marx) , primarily led at the shop floor level by Jewish and Italian women, at the top by Sidney Hillman, and aided by Jane Addams and the Women's Trade Union League. The union was condemned by Sam Gompers as a breakaway from the craft-organized (and largely nativist) United Garment Workers of the AFL, and became leaders of a "new unionism" that included the development of unemployment insurance, cooperative housing, labor banking, & consumer cooperatives. Ex library. Top inch of backstrip is torn off, hinges starting, good condition. (ComHist-10-21) ComHist1, amr4. Bookseller Inventory # 20027
