This chapter, in Richard Bales and Charlotte Garden's forthcoming book, Reviving American Labor: Labor Law for Twenty-First Century Economy, introduces the reader to "politically engaged unionism" as demonstrated by the bargaining successes of The Culinary Workers Union Local 226 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Professor Ruben J. Garcia provides a brief background of the union and its member demographics, arguing it can serve as a model for unions across the country.
