A New Alliance In New York State: A Progress Report On The Labor Movement’S Restructuring, Capacity Building, And Programmatic Work, Jeff Grabelsky

Articles and Chapters

The labor movement in New York State has undergone a dramatic restructuring that is part of a national AFL-CIO program called the New Alliance. The purpose of the New Alliance is to build the capacity of local labor movements and empower unions to help shape a region’s political and economic agenda. The restructuring in NYS led to the consolidation of 25 central labor councils into 5 area labor federations, each of which is developing the resources, staff and leadership to help grow labor’s regional power across the state.

Organizing Women: The Nature And Process Of Union Organizing Efforts Among U.S. Women Workers Since The Mid-1990s, Kate Bronfenbrenner Oct 2005

Organizing Women: The Nature And Process Of Union Organizing Efforts Among U.S. Women Workers Since The Mid-1990s, Kate Bronfenbrenner

Articles and Chapters

The relationship between American working women and the U.S. labor movement can neither be easily described nor categorized. In part, this is because women’s participation and experience in the labor movement differ so greatly across industry, region, union, occupation, and ethnic background. But mostly, it is a consequence of the inevitable contradictions that arise when the proportion of women in the labor movement continues to grow at an escalating pace, whereas for most unions and labor federations, the proportion of women in top leadership and staff positions has increased incrementally at best, even in unions where women predominate.

Collective Bargaining In American Higher Education, Ronald G. Ehrenberg, Daniel B. Klaff, Adam T. Kezbom, Matthew P. Nagowski

Articles and Chapters

Recently, however, attention has been also directed at the unionization of two other groups in the higher education workforce. Activists ...
