Josh Eidelson: Business Unionism vs. Organized Labor

program date: 
Mon, 03/05/2012

Joe Clement and Josh Eidelson talk about the pitfalls of organizing workers (into unions) on the model of a business. The practice is widely known as "service-unionism" or "business-unionism" and  in many ways boils down union membership to a customer relation to a service provider, disempowering workers and ultimately weakening unions as worker-organizations. They also take up the role of Occupy recently in the Longshore-workers' struggle in Longview and how they may help put the movement back in the labor movement.
