The great autoworkers struggle of 2015: Lessons of the rank-and-file revolt against the UAW

$3.50

Quick Overview

In the fall of 2015, autoworkers in the United States rebelled against the attempt of the United Auto Workers (UAW) to force through sellout contracts at Ford, General Motors and Fiat Chrysler.

This eruption of class struggle, in opposition to the decades-long corporate assault on the jobs and living standards of workers, shocked and astounded UAW officials, the media establishment and the Obama administration.

In defiance of the attempts by the media and big business politicians to portray America as a society riven by racial divisions, the autoworkers’ struggle pushed to the forefront the fundamental class issues. Black, white and immigrant workers and workers of all generations came together in a common fight to defend jobs, wages and working conditions.

Contained in this pamphlet are a series of articles republished from the World Socialist Web Site outlining the course of this struggle. They examine the political, historical, theoretical and practical issues raised by the autoworkers’ battle.

Black, white and immigrant workers and workers of all generations came together in a common fight to defend jobs, wages and working conditions. The Socialist Equality Party and the World Socialist Web Site Autoworker Newsletter played a critical role in this struggle, raising the decisive questions of leadership and perspective. The SEP and the WSWS Autoworker Newsletter emerged as a center of opposition of rank-and-file workers. Thousands read and circulated the newsletter every day, and hundreds participated in conference calls to discuss the strategy for the struggle. Contained in this pamphlet are a series of articles republished from the World Socialist Web Site outlining the course of this struggle. They examine the political, historical, theoretical and practical issues raised by the autoworkers’ battle.
