Union Bust from the Author: Warren Murphy. Eugene Jethro is a rising star in the union movement - personable, charming and possessed of an unerring feel for the levers of power. He has emerged from obscurity almost overnight, set on winning the presidency of the International Brotherhood of Drivers. But that's not the limit of his ambitions. As well as building a mysterious headquarters complex, union brothers who don't see things Jethro's way have started disappearing, and there is talk of several mergers which would give him a stranglehold on American transportation and shipping. But nobody's going to strangle America. Not if Remo has anything to say about it. Remo Williams is The Destroyer, an ex-cop who should be dead, but instead fights for the secret government law-enforcement organisation CURE. Trained in the esoteric martial art of Sinanju by his aged mentor, Chiun, Remo is America's last line of defence. Breathlessly action-packed and boasting a winning combination of thrills, humour and mysticism, the Destroyer is one of the bestselling series of all time.

A Union Buster Confesses from the Author: Martin Jay Levitt. This is the complete reprint of "Confessions of a Union Buster" - at a better price than used. Every Union member, organizer, or those who seek to be heard by management should understand the methods, some illegal, companies will use to stifle your right to organize. This book was written by a 'human relations consultant', the phony title given to people who are paid huge money to break union organizing activity. The author of this book was successful over 200 times. This is his story- and more importantly, his playbook of tricks, lies, and deceit used to accomplish his work. Use it to inoculate members, to train them to see what is happening when the tools exposed by this book are used. Unions aren't pure and innocent, but the havoc and hardship wreaked by people like this on common workers is tremendous. And he admits that. If you want to see the insider's view, this book is a must read. From the Prologue: "Union busting is a field populated by bullies and built on deceit. A campaign against a union is an assault on individuals and a war on the truth. As such, it is a war without honor. The only way to bust a union is to lie, distort, manipulate, threaten, and always, always attack. The law does not hamper the process. Rather, it serves to suggest maneuvers and define strategies. Each "union prevention" campaign, as the wars are called, turns on a combined strategy of disinformation and personal assaults. When a chief executive hires a labor relations consultant to battle a union, he gives the consultant run of the company and closes his eyes. The consultant, backed by attorneys, installs himself in the corporate offices and goes to work creating a climate of terror that inevitably is blamed on the union. Some corporate executives I encountered liked to think of their anti-union consultants as generals. But really the consultants are terrorists. Like political terrorists, the consultants' attacks are in tensely personal. Terrorists do not make factories and air strips their victims; they choose instead crippled old men and school children. Likewise, as the consultants go about the business of destroying unions, they invade people's lives, demolish their friendships, crush their will, and shatter their families." Now you can buy this classic work brand new-for less than half the price of used- PLUS it is available on Kindle!

Song Of The Stubborn One Thousand from the Author: Peter Shapiro. On September 9, 1985, one thousand mainly Mexican women workers in Watsonville, California, the “frozen food capital of the world,” were forced out on strike in response to an attempt by Watsonville Canning owner, Mort Console, to break their union. They returned to work eighteen months later. Not one had crossed the picket line. A moribund union has been revitalized, and Watsonville's Latino majority emerged as a major force in local politics. At a time when organized labor was in headlong retreat, the Watsonville Canning strike was a dramatic show of the power of women workers, whose struggle became a rallying point for the Chicano movement. Apart from its sheer drama, the strikers' story illuminates the challenges facing a group of ordinary working people who waged a protracted and ultimately successful struggle against seemingly insurmountable odds.

Mobsters Unions And Feds from the Author: James B. Jacobs. Nowhere in the world has organized crime infiltrated the labor movement as effectively as in the United States. Yet the government, the AFL-CIO, and the civil liberties community all but ignored the situation for most of the twentieth century. Since 1975, however, the FBI, Department of Justice, and the federal judiciary have relentlessly battled against labor racketeering, even in some of the nation's most powerful unions. Mobsters, Unions, and Feds is the first book to document organized crime's exploitation of organized labor and the massive federal cleanup effort. A renowned criminologist who for twenty years has been assessing the government's attack on the Mafia, James B. Jacobs explains how Cosa Nostra families first gained a foothold in the labor movement, then consolidated their power through patronage, fraud, and violence and finally used this power to become part of the political and economic power structure of Twentieth century urban America. Since FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover's death in 1972, federal law enforcement has aggressively investigated and prosecuted labor racketeers, as well as utilized the civil remedies provided for by the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization (RICO) statute to impose long-term court-supervised remedial trusteeships on mobbed-up unions. There have been some impressive victories, including substantial progress toward liberating the four most racketeer-ridden national unions from the grip of organized crime, but victory cannot yet be claimed. The only book to investigate how the mob has exploited the American labor movement, Mobsters, Unions, and Feds is the most comprehensive study to date of how labor racketeering evolved and how the government has finally resolved to eradicate it.
