"It don't make no difference: Arabs, Jews, Blacks, Mexicans. We are all human beings. We all work in the same place. Hot, dirty, no good." -- Worker in U.E. Wells

From acclaimed Chicago filmmaking collective Kartemquin Films comes a collection of three important Labor Stories of the 1970s - "HSA Strike '75," "U.E. Wells," and "What's Happening at Local 70." Kartemquin, renowned for its legacy of artistic and socially relevant documentaries (its alumni created the celebrated Hoop Dreams) offers the stories of the epic struggles of three separate unions in this anthology. These films not only allowed the workers and their unions to tell their compelling stories but they also affected the course of events for each union.

HSA Strike '75

U.E. Wells

Captures the United Electrical Workers' efforts to organize a cast-iron foundry.

What's Happening At Local 70
