Kim Scipes on the Failure of Labor Leadership in the US

Kim Scipes (2017) "The Epic Failure of Labor Leadership in the United States, 1980-2017 and Continuing," Class, Race and Corporate Power: Vol. 5 : Iss. 2 , Article 5.

Abstract: The organizational failure of labor leadership in the US is more than individual failures, which could perhaps be overcome by the election of new leaders. The author argues that the model of trade unionism that has dominated US unionism—business unionism—offers no viable way forward and must be replaced by another model— social justice unionism.
