Building Global Labor Solidarity in a Time of Accelerating Globalization
Edited by Kim Scipes
Since the 1980s, the world’s working class has been under continual assault by the forces of neoliberalism and imperialism. In response, new labor movements have emerged across the Global South–from Brazil and South Africa to Indonesia and Pakistan.
Building Global Labor Solidarity in a Time of Accelerating Globalization is a call for international solidarity to resist the assaults on labor’s power. This collection of essays by international labor activists and academics examines models of worker solidarity, different forms of labor organizations, and those models’ and organizations’ relationships to social movements and civil society.
“Kim Scipes has toiled long and hard to bring a thoughtful analysis of true international solidarity to American workers. He has exposed the duplicity of many in the US labor bureaucracy who have sided with corporate American internationally in the betrayal of workers struggles. This anthology of some of the finest thinkers on this topic is a must read.”—Peter Olney, retired Organizing Director International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU)
