dc.description.abstract[Excerpt] Buena Vista is remarkable, however, because of the courage and determination of the mostly black, mostly female poultry processing workers at Cargill, Inc. Their story is one of organizing a union to force management to pay some attention to the health and safety problems of poultry workers. The union, the Retail, Wholesale & Department Store Union (RWDSU), threw everything at Cargill to help these workers organize, stay organized, and win a first contract. The workers at Buena Vista, in turn, have inspired the RWDSU to target the poultry industry across the South for a major organizing effort in the 1990s.
