A Collective Bargain: Unions, Organizing, and the Fight for Democracy

This book is about Jane McAlevey
In "A Collective Bargain: Unions, Organizing, and the Fight for Democracy," Jane McAlevey presents a compelling argument for the revitalization of unions as a formidable force against economic inequality and an essential pillar of democracy. Published on April 27, 2021, this timely book explores the decline of unions under the relentless pressure of corporate interests and political complicity since the 1930s, paralleling the rise in social and economic injustices. McAlevey, a seasoned labor organizer and activist, illustrates through vivid accounts—from Pennsylvania nurses developing patient-centered unionism to Silicon Valley tech workers embracing collective action—how unions are experiencing a resurgence. She convincingly argues that unions can bridge the wealth gap, combat workplace harassment, address racial disparities, and advocate for climate justice. Ideal for adult education groups, this book not only educates but also inspires action in the realm of economic justice, offering a crucial lens on the struggles defining the United States today.
