[Excerpt] Since 1984, the [ILGWU] has initiated a series of efforts to better secure the jobs, working conditions, and earnings opportunities of garment workers and to chart new directions for small union manufacturers and contractors. In the process, the union has evolved a multi-pronged industry strategy for the women's apparel industry that holds important lessons for the labor movement and for communities that depend on industrial jobs.
