Social Unionism in Action

Organizing the Unorganized

We offer here a small sampling of critical moments from the well known New York City campaigns, together with two lesser-known examples of successful organizing drives in widely separated areas of the country. One is a campaign in 1966–67 that successfully crossed racial barriers in Little Rock, Arkansas. The other is from Los Angeles during the 1970s, when a remarkable group of women organizers, themselves immigrants, devised multi-lingual organizing materials that enabled them to organize the Spanish-speaking immigrants that the local county union leaders had considered unorganizable.
