027: Staughton Lynd, Solidarity Unionism

large_711_solidarity_unionismAfter a long hiatus, Black Sheep socialist podcast returns with episode 027. In this episode, w

e interview Staughton Lynd about the second edition of his book, “Solidarity Unionism”, recently released by PM Press.

We’ve interviewed a number of other peo
ple about the labor movement, and Lynd presents ideas that are closer aligned with autonomous Marxist ideas and positions of the Industrial Workers of the World. As always, we ask questions and allow our guest to answer however they will.

In this interview, we discuss the concept of Solidarity Unionism as described by Lynd,the applications and challenges of workers’ solidarity in late capitalism, issues of labor law, low wage workers’ strikes and Lynd’s concept of democratic socialism. One part I found particularly interesting was comparing the US model of exclusive bargaining for unions with European multi-union collaboration.

Listen in and stay tuned for more!
