  •  UFCW mag in mid 1980s (2+ / 0-)

    I was part of the United Food and Commercial Workers' Union, whose magazine spent more time denouncing Reagan than telling people how to organize.  It was also very sloppy about letting members get copies of the union's contract.  I never saw a UFCW pin and saw only one UFCW jacket.  Nobody ever told me the function of a shop steward or even offered a "welcome to the union" orientation.

    Reagan deserved all the denunciation he got, but no Republican forced the war between the UFCW and its own striking workers in Iowa during the 1980s.
