My new book is finally out and I tried to cover every situation an
organizer, or an organizing program, confronts as we try to rebuild the
union movement. The book, 130 pages long, is based on the experiences of
many organizers and covers in every topic three different areasprivate
sector unions, public sector unions and building tradesand includes
materials that have been developed both for real campaigns and for
organizers¹ training sessions that I have run.
The book is $17.00 and can be ordered from me (4204 Elsrode Avenue.
Baltimore, MD 21214) or from Union Communications, Inc. in Annapolis.
Discounts for orders of more than 10 copies.

"Too long have the workers of the world waited for some Moses to lead them
out of bondage. I would not lead you out if I could; for if you could be led
out, you could be led back again. I would have you make up your minds there
is nothing that you cannot do for yourselves."
Eugene V. Debs (December 18, 1905)
"We are either part of the solution or part of the problem"
