Daniel Gross

Daniel Gross

Daniel Gross co-founded the Industrial Workers of the World union organizing campaign at Starbucks which has expanded across the United States and inspired like-minded efforts around the world. Starbucks’ chief labor attorney argued: “This is a campaign that has tried to do everything possible to disrupt the operations of Starbucks to harm the company.”

Gross is co-founder and executive director of Brandworkers International, a non-profit organization protecting and advancing the rights of retail and food employees. On the issue of workers’ rights, the New York Times has called him, “earnest, articulate, and dogmatic to a flaw…”. A graduate of Fordham Law School, he serves on the executive committee of the National Lawyers Guild Labor and Employment Committee.

He writes frequently on retail and food worker issues for Counterpunch.org and is frequently quoted in national media outlets including the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal.

Praise

“Workers’ rights are under attack on every front. Bosses break the law every day. For 30 years Labor Law for the Rank and Filer has been arming workers with an introduction to their legal rights (and the limited means to enforce them) while reminding everyone that real power comes from workers’ solidarity.” —Alexis Buss, former general secretary-treasurer of the IWW

“As valuable to working persons as any hammer, drill, stapler, or copy machine, Labor Law for the Rank and Filer is a damn fine tool empowering workers who struggle to realize their basic dignity in the workplace while living through an era of unchecked corporate greed. Smart, tough, and optimistic, Staughton Lynd and Daniel Gross provide nuts and bolts information to realize on-the-job rights while showing us that another world is not only possible but inevitable.” —John Philo, legal director, Maurice and Jane Sugar Law Center for Economic and Social Justice

“Some things are too important to leave to so called “experts”: our livelihoods, our dignity and our rights. In this book, Staughton Lynd and Daniel Gross have provided us with a very necessary, empowering, and accessible tool for protecting our own rights as workers.”  —Nicole Schulman, co-editor Wobblies! A Graphic History and World War 3 Illustrated.

“Lynd and Gross are to be commended for developing a useful resource not just for shop stewards, but for every wage-earner engaged in the struggle to improve the condition of working people.” —Gordon Simmons, UE Local 170

“For those readers who want to strengthen workers rights and improve our overall quality of life, or for those who may see labor organizing as also a strategy to achieve not only the vision of a participatory economy but a participatory society as well then this book should definitely be in your arsenal.” —Michael McGehee, Z Magazine

Praise

“Not even the doughtiest of capitalism’s defenders can read these pages without understanding how much glory and nobility there was in the IWW story, and how much shame for the nation that treated the Wobblies so shabbily.”  —New York Times Book Review, on the 1964 edition.

“The IWW blazed a path in industrial history and its influence is still felt today. Joyce Kornbluh has performed a valuable service to unionism by compiling this comprehensive anthology on the more militant side of labor history.”  —Southwest Labor
