African Americans, Labor and Society: Organizing for a New Agenda (Hardback)Patrick L. Mason (editor)
- Not available
This collection of essays, written by legal scholars, professional organizers, and economists, suggests integrating civil rights and labor laws to strengthen both anti-discrimination and union-organizing efforts. The volume demonstrates the negative effects for union workers of arbitration agreements that undermine civil rights legislation in the workplace. It also provides a detailed case study of the nature and extent of racial conflict within a major industrial union, and analyzes and suggests policy changes that would increase the political and economic power of American workers as a whole, while aggressively attacking racism in social, economic, and political institutions.
African Americans, Labor, and Society presents strategies for creating better opportunities for African Americans through private sector employment that will appeal to legal, union, and labor students and scholars, as well as economists.
