ABOUT THE BOOK:
“Workers’ rights are not defined by law or contract. Workers’ rights are defined by struggle.”
In an industry under constant attack, a veteran autoworker offers his take on the collapse of the American Dream. These biting shop-floor bulletins chronicle a decade of autoworker resistance to ever-expanding concessions pressured upon them by union bureaucrats and company men alike. Offering a take-down of both the union-management partnership approach and the “bankruptcy as a business plan,” Autoworkers Under the Gun summons a rank-and-file call to action for a new generation crashing the gates of recession-racked American Dream.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Gregg Shotwell, a machine operator turned rebel writer, worked 30 years at General Motors. His shop-floor fliers grew legs of their own, distributed by rank-and-filers and cited by auto industry analysts.
