A Serf’s Journal
The Story of the United States’ Longest Wildcat Strike
By Terry Tapp
Recalling the JeffBoat incident of 2001, A Serf’s Journal is Terry Tapp’s formidable first-hand account of American workers in Jeffersonville, Indiana, as they fought a multinational company and their corrupt union to stage the longest wildcat strike in US history.
“Every day, millions of people grind their way through miserable work. And every day, a few of them decide the status quo cannot stand—they have to fight back. Very few of either of those stories ever get told, particularly by the heroic people who lived them. Terry Tapp does both in a tale of unbelievably miserable, dangerous work and courageous fed-up workers up against incredibly tall odds. Anyone who has worked a terrible job should read it. Anyone who has dreamed about fighting back should study it.”—Micah Uetricht, author of Strike for America: Chicago Teachers Against Austerity
