Jane McAlevey shares her favourite lessons from John Steuben's 1950 book Strike Strategy. The gist is: strikes are good, and they should have widespread worker participation to be effective.

McAlevey, J. (2019). The Strike as the Ultimate Structure Test. Jacobin, 7, pp. 123-136

To abandon the strike is to abandon the concept of wage labor; for the essence of wage labor as opposed to slave labor, is refusal to work when conditions of work become unbearable.

A strike is an organized cessation from work. It is the collective halting of production or services in a plant, industry, or area for the purpose of obtaining concessions from employers. A strike is labor’s weapon to enforce labor’s demands.
