This is the story of the International Union of Operating Engineers (I.U.O.E.), AFL-CIO, during the period 1960-1993. The book provides a vivid picture of the roller coaster ride I.U.O.E. members have experienced over the past 33 years, drawing on extensive interviews of members. Part I traces in five chapters the causes and consequences of the union's rapid growth during the period 1960-75. Part II covers a period of marked membership decline and the beginnings of the recovery during the years 1975-93 and closes with an appraisal of the union's future. Appropriate for graduate and undergraduate students and teachers in labor economics and labor management relations.
