The CIO, 1935-1955


This book encompassed the largest sustained surge of worker organization in American history. Robert Zieger charts the rise of this industrial union movement, from the launching of the CIO by John L. Lewis in 1935 to its merger under Walter Reuther with the American Federation of Labor in 1955. Combing the institutional history of the CIO with vivid depictions of working class life, he also analyzes the racial and gender dimensions of industrial unionism.
