Labor Law for the Rank and Filer: Building Solidarity While Staying Clear of the Law is a practical guide to workers’ rights that demonstrates how "solidarity unionism" works. The book is proving to be especially popular among younger workers, including many at Google and Uber, who’ve had little exposure to the mainstream labor movement.
Blending cutting-edge legal strategies with a theory of dramatic social change from below, the authors suggest ways of organizing and mobilizing workers to win justice and fair conditions. The updated edition includes new cases governing fundamental labor rights and can be used not only by union workers, but can serve as a guerrilla legal handbook for any employee in this unstable economy.
The book includes a section on tactics and principles of practicing solidarity unionism. Illustrative stories of workers’ struggles make the legal principles come alive.
