Book review

By their thorough examination of 120 years of carpenter unions in Chicago, Schneirov and Suhrbur add depth and detail to existing studies on building trades unions. With an effective balance of analysis and interpretation, the authors examine labor unions within the larger social order in which they existed. They go beyond a history of collective bargaining to define the interplay between union development, technological innovation, the changing balance of power between workers and employers in the city, and the role of carpenters in progressive social movements. They provide insights to such questions as the Pullman strike, World War I labor policies, open shop campaigns, New Deal work-relief programs, and collective bargaining in the building trades.
