Publisher's Summary

Workers talk about the lives they lived, the battles they fought, the union they built, and the history they made. The United Auto Workers' Ford Local No. 600 was not only the biggest local union in the world, it was also one of the most militant, radical, yet democratic unions in the United States.

Talking Union gives us the exceptional opportunity to hear members of this local tell about their activism as they experienced it. These rich, eloquent narratives show the dedication and bravery that went into reshaping class relations and greatly expanding the freedom of the “common people” in America.

The book is published by University of Illinois Press.
