Summary
"From the late 1930s through the mid-1950s, the Congress of Industrial Organizations (CIO) brought together America's working men and women under a united class banner. Of the thirty-eight CIO unions, eighteen were "left-wing" or "Communist-dominated." Yet the political stuggle between the CIO's "Communist-dominated" and right-wing unions was divisive and self-destructive. How did the Communists win, hold, and wield power in the CIO unions? Did they subordinate the needs of workers to those of the Soviet regime? The authors provide testable answers to these questions with historically specific, quantitative analyses of data on the CIO's origins, internal struggles, and political relations. They find that the CIO's Communist-led unions were among the most egalitarian and progressive on class, race, and gender issues, and fought to enlarge the freedom and enhance the human dignity of America's workers."--Jacket
