Rotterdam dockers called upon their European colleagues to support a strike in 1896. As a direct result of the practical solidarity by seafarers, a new organization was born. In 1996 the International Transport Workers' Federation (ITF) celebrates 100 years of solidarity, and this book is published as part of its programme of celebrations.

The International Longshore and Warehouse Union, born out of the 1934 West Coast maritime and San Francisco general strikes under the leadership of Harry Bridges, has been known for its commitment to democracy, solidarity, and social justice. In this collection of narratives, union leaders and rank-and-file workers talk about their lives at work, on the picket line, and in the union.
