Textile Workers Union of America, AFL-CIO, and the Labor Theater
Bayard Rustin narrates this story of the long struggle of Oneita Knitting Mill workers who fought for a contract 14 months after they won a representation election at the South Carolina textile plant. Workers explain what the union means to them in terms of human dignity, job security, wages and fringe benefits, and describe what they learned when Black and white workers joined together to fight for a union. Songs by Joe Glazer.
