The demands and responsibilities that fall on the modern labor leader or organizer are heavy, sometimes daunting. This booklet, by two of the top organizers in the Metro Industrial Areas Foundation, lays out how four of the basic organizing tools used in successful community organizing can be adapted and used by labor unions both to rebuild their membership and leadership and to establish needed relationships with outside institutions and organizations that can help them achieve their mutual selfinterests. These tools include: One-to-One Individual Meetings, Power Analysis and Charting Internal Relationships, Teaching and Training, and Action and Evaluation, and are presented here clearly and with specific union examples.
Finally! A booklet for unions!!

Organizing is such a fundamental tool for labor unions, yet we've relied on pamphlets that more directly relate to interfaith organizing. I'm so excited about this new publication that I ordered two as soon as they hit the presses, and I've ordered 80 more to use with my field organizers! The first chapter on one-on-ones ABSOLUTELY hits the nail on the head. I'm excited to put this reference into practice with my union members!
