Schiavone (Flinders U., Australia) assesses the state of American labor unionism, which may be in decline but still offers the most promising avenue for improving the lives of workers. He analyzes strategies that have been proposed for revitalizing unionism: value-added unionism, union democracy, labor-community alliances, organizing the unorganized, and labor internationalism. He also examines and critiques the strategies of the relatively successful Service Employees International Union and of the breakaway labor federation Change to Win. Social justice unionism is explored (and lauded), and more obscure organizing strategies are also examined. The final chapter discusses outside factors that may hamper union revitalization.
