Manila Workers' Union 1900-1950

Regular price ₱300.00

 There have been very few books written on the history of the Manila labor movement, including the first four federations: Union Obrero Democratrica (UOD, Democratic Labor Union) {1902}; Congreso Obrero de Filipinas (COF, Labor Congress of the Philippines) {1913}; Katipunan ng mga Anak-Pawis sa Pilipinas (KAP, Labor Congress of the Philippines) {1929}; Congress of Labor Organizations (CLO) {1945}; and worker unions, with particular focus on the tobacco factory workers' union Union de Tabaqueros de Filipinas (UTF). This book, which relies heavily on first-hand interviews with union officers, attempts to demystify many preconceptions about these organizations, including labor organizations' involvement with the Communist Party of the Philippines (CCP).

Dr. Melinda Tria Kerkvliet received her doctorate in history, majoring in Southeast Asia, from the University of Hawaii at Mānoa. Her research interests include: worker histories in Hawai'i, the Philippines, and Vietnam; Philippine Masonry; and Philippine public school teachers.
