Product Details


“Len McCluskey is Britain’s best known, and arguably most powerful, trade union leader for good reason. He engagingly mixes personal experiences with unflinching conviction to present a compelling argument for the value of organised labour—whichever political party is Government.”
—Kevin Maguire, Daily Mirror

“A brilliant, accessible and thought-provoking book—and a reminder that unions will always be the best way for working-class people to win justice. Featuring a wealth of historical material, this lively and personal account shows how organised labour can thrive in the future. A must-read for trade unionists, activists and anybody who wants to build a more equal society.”
—Frances O’Grady, General Secretary, Trades Union Congress

“An absolute pleasure to read: it’s part Len’s personal history, part argument for an active, participatory trade union movement. In drawing out the lessons of recent trade union disputes and campaigns, such as the Gate Gourmet strike, the British Airways dispute and the various battles round precarious work, this book will be a vital resource for young activists in particular. I think it should be on everyone’s reading list, in the Labour Party and beyond.”
—Laura Pidcock, former Labour MP

“Len McCluskey’s little red book.”
—Niall Paterson

“Excellent, clear, contemporary in its examples and historically informed.”
Manchester Review of Books
