Save Our Unions: Dispatches From A Movement in Distress brings together recent essays and reporting by labor journalist Steve Early. The author illuminates the challenges facing U.S. workers, whether theya€™re trying to democratize their union, win a strike, defend past contract gains, or bargain with management for the first time. Drawing on forty years of personal experience, Early writes about cross-border union campaigning, labor strategies for organizing and health care reform, and political initiatives that might lessen worker dependence on the Democratic Party. Save Our Unions contains vivid portraits of rank-and-file heroes and heroines, both well-known and unsung. It takes readers to union conventions and funerals, strikes and picket-lines, celebrations of labora€™s past and struggles to insure that unions still have a future in the 21st century. The booka€™s insight, analysis and advocacy make this an important contribution to the project of labor revitalization and reform.CWA lobbied against thetransaction, in part, because MetroPCS has contractedoutall ofits customer service andbilling workto firms likeTelvisa, whichoperates callcentersin Mexico, Antigua, Panama, andthe Philippines.
