Come join Labor Negotiator/Attorney Joe Burns in a discussion of his new
book, Reviving the Strike.
"An effective and provocative historical approach to a complex problem: How
do working Americans and their unions reverse the decline in living
standards and employment security in the global economy?" -- Larry Cohen,
International President of the Communication Workers of America
"Joe Burns' new book explains why this traditional tool of worker struggle
is still relevant and how it can be used effectively in the 21st century.
Reviving The Strike deserves a wide labor audience" -- Steve Early, Labor
Journalist and Author of The Civil Wars in US Labor.
"Joe Burns shows us how badly employers needed to outlaw solidarityand the
drastic consequences for workers. This book will prompt some major
rethinking." -- Jane Slaughter, founder of Labor Notes Magazine and editor
of Troublemakers Handbook II
"Joe Burns has written an important book, stressing through a series of
examples the importance of the strike to the past and future of the labor
movement. Burns also makes an eloquent plea for a return to old fashioned,
class conscious, militant unionism which, he argues persuasively, can
restore the strike and rejuvenate the labor movement." -- Julius Getman,
Professor of Law at the University of Texas and author of The Betrayal of
Local 14 and Restoring the Power of Unions.
Books available for purchase and signing.
