Labor-Party Relations in Three Cities

Part of the Springer Studies in Work and Industry book series (SSWI)


Relations between labor and the Democratic Party have been changing ever since the New Deal. Below, I describe the main changes from 1960 to the present. Then I examine the current efforts of the Democratic Party and COPE to aggregate interest groups behind the party in each of the three cities. After tracing the impact of each city’s political culture on the political behavior of individual unions, I evaluate the effectiveness of the party’s and labor’s electoral systems in the three cities, comparing their patterns to Greenstone’s community typology.
