A crucial set of questions toward the possibility of a very much better society revolve around the potential role of unions. Questions like can unions mobilize their members on issues that go beyond the workplace? How should we as workers relate to the constraints of labor law and the conventions of contracts? Should radicals now aim at leadership positions in unions? To approach these questions on today’s episode of Another World Is Possible, Norm Diamond looks at the history of a rebel union in the U.S. led by members of the Communist Party, the United Farm Equipment Workers of America, and a recent book on the union by the daughter of one of its leaders.
