Josh Eidelson: Business Unionism vs. Organized Labor

program date: 
Mon, 03/05/2012

Joe Clement and Josh Eidelson talk about the pitfalls of organizing workers (into unions) on the model of a business. The practice is widely known as "service-unionism" or "business-unionism" and  in many ways boils down union membership to a customer relation to a service provider, disempowering workers and ultimately weakening unions as worker-organizations. They also take up the role of Occupy recently in the Longshore-workers' struggle in Longview and how they may help put the movement back in the labor movement.

 Hosted by Paul Van Dyck

 

The race for The White House is heating up. Four years ago Sounds of Awareness broadcast a program on access to the voting booth by people with disabilities. Though some of the names have been changed since then to protect the innocent, we felt that now would be a good time to revisit this vital topic.
