LRR Focus: Solidarity NOT Charity
Sanchez, D. Catherine
[Excerpt] Can global solidarity really help unions with their organizing efforts? Only if we stop thinking about international solidarity as "charity" work for the "developing" world. Only if we recognize the limitations of isolated local union struggles against international corporations and financial institutions. Only if we build international union structures to support efforts in organizing more workers and bargaining collective agreements.
