Rank & File Organizing and Labor Militancy
"You should be scared, son. You know, I'm scared too. But the fear's not the problem. It's what you do with it."
We speak with filmmaker Joan Sekler about Locked Out, her film about the 500 courageous miners in Boron, California, who faced down the huge mining corporation Rio Tinto.
"To me, the most enduring unity among workers -- particularly if they're in different unions -- is built from the bottom up, on a cross-union basis."
Then we speak with Steve Early, labor activist and author of The Civil Wars in U.S. Labor: Birth of New Workers' Movement or Death Throes of the Old? about the challenges of new organizing, the birth of new movements in unions, and resurgence of labor militancy.
