Clancy vs Manzie

 American Trade Union activist   Jane McAlevey     recently visited Birmingham Unison.

If you would like a copy of her inspiring book it can be brought from here.


This book renews my faith that organizing works. It calls for a new kind of unionism and makes a compelling case for a new vision for the American labor movement. In the whole-worker theory that McAlevey tested and retested in real-life campaigns, all the issues negatively impacting the poor, working and middle class become the cause of unions, not simply wages and narrowly defined workplace conditions. Raising Expectations is so refreshing because it aspires to tell us how we can rebuild a movement that can win.”
