In this book, Farrell Dobbs, one of the organizers of the landmark strike of 1934 against the trucking companies operating in Minneapolis, provides an insider s look at the struggles of Teamster Local 574 and how the Local became a vigorous social force in the city. Rebelión Teamster is the first of four books in the Teamster Series published by Pathfinder. The series consists of: Rebelión Teamster, Poder Teamster, Teamster Politics and Teamster Bureaucracy. Rebelión Teamster and Poder Teamster are available in Spanish.
Jack Barnes, an American Communist and the National Secretary of the Socialist Workers Party, provides a thoughtful introduction to this book explaining that Rebelión Teamster is the documented history of a solid experience in the struggle between classes... Photographs and newspaper clippings add to the historical value of Dobb s accounts.
Recommended for adult collections in public and academic libraries. --REFORMA journal

Farrell Dobbs was transformed by the struggles in this book. He had wanted to be a judge. He had been a forman. He had tried to run a small business. The depression threw him into the coal yards of Minneapolis. He became one of the workers who helped unionize the coal yards, then unionize the truckers, then turn the Teamsters into an industrial union, because they had the opportunity to meet up with the revolutionary Marxist ideas supplied by communists like the Dunne Brothers. This is the story not of Dobbs alone, but of the great Minneapolis Strikes of 1934 that led the way for the CIO. This is the story of how workers can bust through the conservatism, the apathy, the company loving bureaucracy in their unions, to demonstrate their power. This story is told by a man who was there, as a coal yard worker, a truck driver, the union's organizer. We need to know how to do this now!
