Rank-and-file rebellion: 1966-1975
This dissertation investigates the upsurge of working class militancy in the late 1960s and early 1970s, when American union workers engaged in an extraordinary level of rank-and-file activism. An investigation among three groups of workers -- postal workers, communications workers, and teamsters, demonstrates how changes on the job and in the union stimulated and retarded union workers' organization.
