Strand Bookstore Labor Battle


Manhattan’s Strand Bookstore is in the midst of a labor struggle. Employees have launched a blog, which contains their original press release: “Strand ownership mounts unprecedented attack on union.”

MetroFocus reports on the current causes, as well as labor issues that have arisen at Strand in the past. Socialist worker has an article on the union battle that “looms” at the bookstore.

In 2005, an anonymous Strand employee won The Village Voice’s “Best Boss-Bashing Blogger” award.
