Abstract

[Excerpt] Combining traditional union political clout and job-site actions with intervention in the building and environmental permit process, the Job & Community Protection Program has already had a significant impact on preserving both union jobs and environmental quality in California. But more than that, this unusual alliance establishes the potential of union-initiated coalitions to resist the corporate and developer blackmail that has been so successful elsewhere in pitting various community interests against each other.
