Symposium: Organized Labor from Gompers to Sweeney

In the introductory remarks to his comprehensive study of the bureaucratization of the mainstream of organized labor, Taking Care of Business, Paul Buhle writes: "This book is about history, but inevitably it poses a contemporary question: which way will organized labor go now in the era of the global economy, with its back evidently against the wall? Will it return to the familiar pattern of business unionism, adjusted in small ways? Or will it move toward a new social unionism, joined to other sectors of society, the dispossessed and those eager to see life change?"

How Paul Buhle answers these questions, what he finds instructive in the lessons of history for building a dynamic trade union movement, is the subject for the symposium below.
