The objective of this course is to recognize the ways in which the union as an institution, and organized labor as a movement, protect the interests of workers on the job and in society. Students will focus on Social Movement Unionism – an approach to unionism that not only looks at wages and working conditions of members, but also concerns itself with social issues affecting all working people, such as civil and human rights, the environment, and democratic processes.
