Celebrating Labor and the International Workers' Holiday II
DAVID J. COHEN
"Labor's Untold Story: Lessons from the Past"

The labor movement is in crisis and many of the lessons from our past can
help us figure out how better to organize and how to deal with a two-party
political system that is largely unresponsive to the needs of poor and
working people.

David Cohen has been active in the labor movement for 38 years, both as a
rank & file elected leader and on staff for UE (United Electrical, Radio &
Machine Workers of America). UE is well known for its commitment to
militant, democratic rank & file unionism. Besides being involved in union
negotiations and organizing, he is also part of the UE Educational Dept.
(Dave is also the son of long-time CCB member, Abe Cohen!)
