Description

This history of New York transit workers from the Great Depression to the monumental 1966 transit strike shows how, through collective action, the men and women who operated the world's largest transit system brought about a virtual revolution in their daily lives. Detailed descriptions of boh transit work and transit workers and a full account of the formation and development of the Transport Workers Union (TWU) provide new insight into the nature of modern industrial unionism. The TWU's pioneering role in public sector unionism is linked to worker militancy and the union's deep involvement in New York politics. In Transit makes a major contribution to the history of American labour, radicalism, and urban politics.show more
