In 1991, Columbia University's one thousand clerical workers launched a successful campaign for justice in their workplace. This diverse union -- two-thirds black and Latina, three-fourths women -- was committed to creating an inclusive movement organization and to fighting for all kinds of justice. How could they address the many race and gender injustices members faced, avoid schism, and maintain the unity needed to win? Sharon Kurtz, an experienced union activist and former clerical worker herself, was welcomed into the union and pursued these questions. Using this case study and secondary studies of sister clerical unions at Yale and Harvard, she examines the challenges and potential of identity politics in labor movements.

With the Columbia strike as a point of departure, Kurtz argues that identity politics are valuable for mobilizing groups, but often exclude members and their experiences of oppression. However, Kurtz believes that identity politics should not be abandoned as a component in building movements, but should be reframed -- as multi-identity politics. In the end she shows an approach to organizing with great potential impact not only for labor unions but for any social movement.

Organizing Multi-Identity Movements

Organizing Multi-Identity Movements. Author: Sharon Kurtz. Sharon Kurtz documents the 1991 Columbia University clerical workers' union campaign in impressive detail, melding together disparate literatures on identity politics, social movements, and labor to develop the notion of ‘identity practices’. Ruth Milkman, Director, UC Institute for Labor and Employment. Workplace Justice makes a major contribution to our understanding of collective identity theory. Through the concept of ‘identity practices,’ Kurtz is able to make sense of the juggling act performed in a strike by a union whose members are mostly women and people of color.
