The "culture of solidarity" that working people created in New
York City was much stronger in some eras than in others, but the
breadth of that culture is impressive. This plaque depicts demonstrations
by the union of municipal workers (American Federation of State,
County and Municipal Employees, AFSCME), and by the hospital workers
union (Local 1199) that garment workers joined in solidarity.
Also shown is one of the cooperative housing developments sponsored
by the garment unions, songs that were often heard in Union Square,
and an album cover from a successful Broadway musical performed
by garment workers.
