    1. Romantic though it seems, the life of labor organizers and unions is messy Most everyone is familiar with the firings for union organizing from which many a motion picture has borrowed from as grist But such high drama can easily be avoided by bosses who understand the law and manipulate missteps to their advantage No doubt corporate attorneys are able to advise their clients to thwart organizing while staying within guidelines And then there are confused organizers who do not grasp the subtleti [...]


    2. 3 1 2 stars, really When is going to add the half star option I really like the premise and purpose of this book And I think that I would love to get coffee with the authors, or just hang out and chat I m pretty sure our ideologies would agree somewhere in the ball park of 100% But I was a little bit annoyed by what felt like a little bit of a superiority complex that came out when they were comparing different organizing models I am 100% in favor of critiquing the historical labor movements, an [...]


    3. I m totally new to this Labor Law thing and picked this up because someone sent me an email about it Things I learned individual workers need to be protected from unions as well as their employers though on balance unions are probably interested in the workers benefit than their employers are collective action need not be through a formal union there s a lot of trickiness around what s legal to do and what s not doubly so if you re part of a formal unionThings I need to think about this seems v [...]


    4. Perfect little book Just enough information to be wise, but not too much to be overwhelmed Every worker in the US needs to read this To a world without bosses


    5. a great primer on a somewhat complicated topic, covering all the basics for anyone trying to unionize a workplace, navigate a unionized workplace, or brush up on termination protocols the explanation of weingarten rights is particularly helpful cf umass usa weingartenm


    6. I m worried that my review of this book may not seem very positive I can t emphasize enough how useful it can be as a primer not only on labor law but also on some key elements of bottom up unionism However, it is only a primer, only an introduction that the reader must follow up with study As a primer, it does an excellent job of demystifying the law and giving common sense explanations of solidarity at work and in the world It points beyond itself, at how the law can be studied further and at [...]


    7. Classic how to manual to understanding the basics of labor law by two radical labor lawyers It gives a brief overview of major components of labor law and best of all gives practical advice for common siuations shop floor fighters will face and teaches you how to be to do your own research as well Even greater though is the books well written section focusing on direct action and the perspective of solidarity unionism.


    8. A nice intro to the basics of labor law I really liked reading the analogy of seeing the law as a shield and not a sword defense, not offense The authors seem to conclude that while the law can be helpful, real change is going to come from workers engaging in direct action in concert with other workers in other industries, activists and organizers and the community at large Good Intro.


    9. This is probably a tremendous resource for American union organizers and labour activists although I suppose they d spell it labor As a Canadian, I found it of marginal utility, although the historical footnotes and examples of case law were interesting.


    10. Anyone know of a similar book that goes over labor law in the same format in Canada or New Zealand Or have case studies of solidarity unionism in Canada or New Zealand Thanks


    11. this is very helpful for folks learning about labor organizing and just basic rights in the workplace super easy as a reference guide too.
