The United Auto Workers Strike w/ Sam Gindin

Oats for Breakfast interviews Sam Gindin about the United Auto Workers-GM strike, which involves 49,000 workers. We talk about what’s at stake for the strikers, the corruption charges that are being brought against the UAW’s leadership, and about the kind of approach unions will have to take if they really hope to build working class power.

Sam Gindin was research director of the Canadian Auto Workers from 1974–2000. He is co-author (with Leo Panitch) of The Making of Global Capitalism (Verso), and co-author with Leo Panitch and Steve Maher of The Socialist Challenge Today, the expanded and updated American edition (Haymarket).
