Fighting Back: Workers Challenge Plant Shut-downs

Other Titles

Abstract

[Excerpt] The United Electrical Workers union, at Allentown and elsewhere, has tried to develop tactics to block "final" plant-closing decisions. In their battles, UE members have challenged management-knows-best assumptions. Instead of offering concession packages, they have gone on the offensive. These efforts illustrate some possible strategies and tactics for labor in general.
