This pamphlet aims to show what small groups and unions can achieve in workplace disputes. These examples and analyses of successful small-scale actions should prove instructive to workers in a variety of fields from a variety of backgrounds, whether they are in the transport or manufacturing sector, students or illegal immigrants, or are employed in another branch of industry.
The articles collected here show that through creativity, organization and fighting spirit small groups of workers and activists are more than able to hold their own against the bosses. With examples from Amsterdam, Berlin, Bremen, Hannover u.a.
We do not agree with all the comments on unions in the text, but the accounts of the events are very instructive and useful.
