Save Our Unions is not another dreary look at declining union membership and concessionary agreements. Nor it is a rerun of the by now superannuated debate between the 'serving model' and the 'organising model' as the universal salvation of organised labour in neoliberal America.

And Save Our Unions contains plenty of material on NUHW’s post-schism campaigns to recruit new members out of SEIU’s ranks, as well as the continuing SEIU-NUHW clashes that have ensued. Early’s sympathy with NUHW is plainly stated and supported by a stinging critique of SEIU’s leadership. Early is an avid consumer of other labor-related books and news articles; Save Our Unions finds him frequently engaging with these sources on an in-depth level. One highlight is his treatment of Raising Expectations (and Raising Hell), a 2012 memoir by Jane McAlevey detailing her years as a mid-level SEIU officer.

When the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991 America celebrated victory. When Vladimir Putin set out to avenge history and make Russia great again, he whipped up anti-American hysteria and scorned Washington’s overreach. In recounting America’s biggest ever humanitarian effort-to save millions of lives in the nascent Soviet state a century ago- The Russian Job by Douglas Smith repudiates the modern mythologies of both countries, and their leaders’ twisted histories.

Save Our Unions: Dispatches From A Movement in Distress brings together recent essays and reporting by labor journalist Steve Early. The author illuminates the challenges facing U.S. workers, whether they’re trying to democratize their union, win a strike, defend past contract gains, or bargain with management for the first time. Drawing on forty years of personal experience, Early writes about cross-border union campaigning, labor strategies for organizing and health care reform, and political initiatives that might lessen worker dependence on the Democratic Party.
  • It's the first book I've ever read about unions and I'm finding it fascinating. Useful historical background and practical tips for the present and future for those who want to see a vibrant and strong labor movement.
    I am a high school teacher ( science and social studies).

  • Great book, perfect copy delivered as promised.

  • super union history very current to understanding the labor movement today in the united states

  • Steve Early, a former longtime organizer with the Communications Workers of America, may be the most knowledgeable labor journalist writing today. In this collection he covers topics as varied as successful and unsuccessful organizing drives, reform efforts within unions, and the problems unions have with the Affordable Care Act (aka “Obamacare).

    Throughout is an overriding concern with reversing declines in union membership and collective bargaining. For that he offers no easy solutions. But he suggests the necessity of reforms to make a number of unions more democratic and able to represent better member interests. He is for sure a critic but one who fully embraces the union cause.

    Anyone concerned with reinvigorating the union movement should read this book. Anyone concerned with reversing the beating that working people have taken in this country over the last four decades as union power has declined should read this book.

  • Steve Early has not only been writing about unions for more than four decades, he has been on the frontlines for some of the most important struggles in labor and working class history since the early 1970s. This book is not only a collection of his published writings, but an expansion and clarification of other writing he has done on the important political issues of our time. Early also writes lucidly about the future of organized labor in the globalized US and shares some best practices from across the country. A must read!

  • Steve Early is very insightful about the problems and challenges workers and their unions face. He does something few authors about the labor movement do: providing thoughtful criticism and honest reflection on the policies and programs of unions. I highly recommend this book!
