These are the unions with which business comes daily to grips. When the man who has little to do with unions hears of labor unions he is too apt to think of the international unions and the big names at the top. This deals with the local units that go to make up the large internationals. It tells of the workings and the basic fundamentals and the workers with their daily problems of management and fellow workers and the parent organizations. You catch the spirit of cooperation as well as the antagonism of the people whose lives are influenced. You feel the political and personal contacts of the workers, from the lowliest members to the stewards, the officers, on up to the big wheels. This is a cross section of labor at local level- important background on the thinking and action of the little people. Worthwhile.
