The title is misleading. It should be 'The Rise of Unions in the Pacific Northwest'.
I was expecting research, facts, reports and tools for both workers and companies. Instead, this book seems to be written from the single premise that unions are good, corporations are bad, and the only path to employee happiness is through a union.
While I'm a supporter of collective bargaining, I also realize there is more to employee satisfaction than this either or choice. Unfortunately, the only tool described here is a Union Hammer and everything looks like a Union Nail.

Loved hearing the labor history in this book
I personally know 3 of the organizers that were interviewed for this book, but I learned so much more about them as I read it. It is well researched and accurately documents the events of Labor struggles in the Pacific Northwest. I highly recommend this to anyone, especially those who work for a living in the Pacific Northwest.
