This week on the Heartland Labor Forum, we’ll focus on radical unions. First, we’ll talk to Toni Gilpin about her new book The Long Deep Grudge: A Story of Big Capital, Radical Labor, and Class War in the American Heartland. Then, workers at Google are forming the Alphabet Workers Union, or AWU, organizing regular and contract employees across Google’s vast empire. They say they will fight for better jobs and to make Google an ethical company. Tune in Thursday at 6pm, rebroadcast Friday at 5am.
