A talk by Jane McAlevey, former Executive Director of SEIU Nevada and author of Raising Expectations (and Raising Hell): My Decade Fighting for the Labor Movement (Verso).
Jane McAlevey is an organizer, author and scholar. Her first book, Raising Expectations (and Raising Hell), published by Verso Press, was named the "most valuable book of 2012" by The Nation magazine. She has served as Executive Director and Chief Negotiator for a union local, as National Deputy Director for Strategic Campaigns of the Healthcare Division for SEIU, and she was the Campaign Director of the one of the only successful multi-union, multi-year, geographic organizing campaigns for the national AFL-CIO. She has led power structure analyses and strategic planning trainings for a wide range of union and community organizations and has had extensive involvement in globalization and global environmental issues. She worked at the Highlander Research and Education Center as an educator (and as Deputy Director) in her early 20's. McAlevey is currently a PhD candidate at the City University of New York's Graduate Center and is a contributing writer at The Nation magazine.

A discussion with author and labour organizer Jane McAlevey
Join Sam Gindin in a discussion with Jane McAlevey about her book Raising Expectations (and Raising Hell).
...
In her book, McAlevey describes her experiences in the labour movement organizing bold, large scale campaigns in right to work Nevada and elsewhere in the U.S., drawing lessons about the potential for rebuilding the labour movement into a movement that can win. McAlevey's experiences organizing in the student, environmental justice and union movement reflect her central belief that meaningful change can only come with "whole-worker organizing" that puts ordinary people at the center of their own struggle, in their workplaces and in their communities.

Jane McAlevey, author of Raising Expectations (And Raising Hell): My Decade Fighting For the Labor Movement (Verso Books, 2012) even became a member of the SEIU national executive before she too was cast aside. Her resulting fury, or political frustration, is reflected in many parts of her new memoir about being undermined and driven out of a 10,000-member SEIU affiliate in Nevada that she labels "one of the most successful in the nation.
...
Lest anyone think that the author's own employment was a little short-term for such a blistering critique, I should note (as the book's subtitle does) that McAlevey actually spent an entire decade trying to straighten out organized labor, as a whole, before concluding it was pretty hopeless.

"Far too much time and energy has been focused on personality issues rather than on the important work of improving the lives of our members," President Vicky Hedderman and Executive Director Jane McAlevey said in a joint letter of resignation.
...
Noting the many accomplishments of the union during the last several years, including standard-setting wage increases and record-high political activism, Hedderman and McAlevey urged the members of SEIU Nevada to heal divisions within the union and to work together to build a stronger union that can "continue to win the improvements they deserve."
