AS STEEL GOES by Robert R. R. Brooks


Email this review


The author of When Labor Organizes and Unions Of Their Own Choosing, who has already shown his sympathy for unionism in basic industries gives here the history of the conflict in the steel industry and how finally the C.I.O. won its dramatic struggle, with ""Big Steel"", but lost out, and the reasons for that failure, in its efforts to organize the smaller companies. Brooks writes vividly of the leaders and followers on each side of the fence, indicating the strengths and weaknesses of each side impartially. A recent press statement by the President of the U. S. Steel Corporation bears out the fact that harmonious employer-employee relationships have been reached and that the struggle portrayed here has not been in vain.
