New York: United Electrical, Radio and Machine Workers of America, 1951-1953. Hardcover. Bound volume of this digest sized union periodical, 7.5 x 5.25 inches, with 18 issues bound together, each about 20-25 pp., illustrated, with articles on union activities, worker rights, civil rights (much on African-Americans and women in the work force and how to provide them equal protection and equal wages), politics, poetry, union politics and philosophy. An interesting time in the history of this rank-and-file worker-run union. UE withdrew from affiliation with CIO in 1949 over differences related to the developing Cold War, during the early stages of which UE was referred to as one of the basic sources of anti-American propaganda both inside and outside the U.S. At the same time, the growing rivalry with the International Union of Electrical Workers (IUE) led to a cold war of sorts domestically (these differences began to resolve in the 1960s when they bargained together to achieve better concessions from General Electric). And the anti-American propaganda is indeed found within. Simply opening to a random page: "What Big Business is Plotting. Concentration camps in America are no accident. There is a Big Business plot, masterminded by the Chamber of Commerce in five 'Reports on Communism' issued by the Chamber for its own employers-members. Since 1946 these reports have blueprinted the government's actions to destroy basic American freedoms." In any case, a rare bound volume, and only a handful of libraries have these among their holdings. Very Good. Item #H15750
