“Charlie McCollester has an advanced degree in philosophy; he was chief steward at Union Switch & Signal in Swissvale; and for many years he has taught trade unionists at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. Drawing on all these experiences, this book tells us that the future of Pittsburgh should not be left in the hands of the rich. The future of Pittsburgh belongs in the hands of the working men and women who made it great to begin with.”
Staughton Lynd, attorney, activist, author
Lucasville; Rank and File;
The Fight Against Shutdowns
