New "Getting Organized" Asks "Will Labor Remain Relevant?"

February 15, 2015

The current issue of CineMontage, the journal of the Motion Picture Editors Guild, includes a "Getting Organized" column reflecting upon the challanges and possible opportunities before the nation's besieged labor movement.  


Local 700 National Organizer Rob Callahan writes:


You likely knew this already: The state of our unions is not good. Indeed, the decline of the labor movement in the United States isn’t a breaking news story flashing across our consciousness with the speed of a trending hashtag; it’s a prolonged and plodding crisis that is older than most of our members, a slow-motion catastrophe as protracted and seemingly intractable as the melting of polar ice.


Callahan goes on to suggest, though, that labor's continued decline is neither inevitable nor irreversable. He argues that those working to resuscitate the movement can learn from campaigns that succesfully revived strategies and traditions predating the advent of federal labor law. 


The full text of Callahan's column is available in the print edition of the Winter 2015 issue of CineMontage, or online on the Post, Proud website.
