The New Rank and File




by Staughton and Alice Lynd

In interviews with veteran activists Staughton and Alice Lynd, rank-and-file workers reveal the specific incidents and pervasive injustices that triggered their activism. They discuss frustrations they faced in attempting to effect change through traditional means, and the ways in which they have learned to advocate through innovation. In an incisive introduction, the Lynds set forth their distinctive perspective on the labor movement, with a focus on “solidarity unionism”: making decisions on the assumption that we all may be leaders at one time or another, rather than relying on static hierarchies.
