Occupy! A Short History of Worker's Occupations

by Dave Sherry - £6.99  Bookmarks (2010)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781905192625 | ISBN 10: 1905192622

Workplace occupations are back. Groups of workers have seized control of their factories to fight closures and job losses in the face of the economic crisis. Occupations, more than strikes or demonstrations, raise the question of who controls the workplace.
Today's movement can learn from a century of experience. Dave Sherry looks at this rich history, including Italy in 1920, the US Flint car workers' sit-in during the Great Depression, and France 1968. He illuminates a little known strand of Britain's radical tradition - the Upper Clyde Shipbuilders' work-in, the women of Lee Jeans and the Caterpillar workers' giant "pink panther".
