The Many and Few A CHRONICLE OF THE DYNAMIC AUTO WORKERS

by Henry Kraus

The Many and Few A CHRONICLE OF THE DYNAMIC AUTO WORKERS Synopsis

The Many and the Few recounts the dramatic inside story of one of the pivotal strikes in American history. For six weeks in 1937, workers at General Motors' Flint, Michigan, plant refused to budge from their sit-down strike. That action changed the course of industrial and labor history, when General Motors finally agreed to recognize the United Auto Workers as the sole bargaining agent in all GM plants. Through it all, UAW activist Henry Kraus was there.

The Many and Few A CHRONICLE OF THE DYNAMIC AUTO WORKERS Press Reviews

Essential for any study of the 1937 sit-down strike in Flint... Communists and socialists were the shop floor cadre of the CIO drive, and it seems appropriate that a radical close to those events be one of the historians. -- Nelson Lichenstein, author of Labor's War at Home: The CIO in World War II
