Synopsis: On Strike for Respect is a lively, readable account of the lengthy 1984-85 strike by clerical and technical workers at Yale University. Members of Local 34, with a strong female majority, mobilized themselves and the public, breathing new life into the labor movement as they fought for and won substantial gains. A short update on current conditions concludes this volume.
Review: Do unions have a place in the Information Age? Is it even possible to create new and effective unions?
This is a lively and thoughtful account of the creation of such a union by white collar workers at Yale University. Having been there during that time, I can vouch for the accuracy of the described effects upon the university community, and was fascinated to read behind-the-scenes accounts of one of the few recent successes in unionization. Highly Recommended to anyone interested in labor issues and women's rights.
