The History of Trade Unions

Skillfully blending archival footage, personal accounts, and commentary from a wide range of experts, this program traces the history of American labor. Focusing on the tumultuous origins and evolution of trade unionism, the program explores how workers' struggles to organize and achieve fair working conditions have been intertwined with some of the country's most important political and social developments: wars, the Industrial Revolution, immigration, Marxism and class conflict, women's rights, the Depression and the New Deal, crime and corruption, civil rights, and technological transformations. Grades 7–12. Color and black-and-white. 40 minutes. Cambridge. ©1994.
