A History of the Amalgamated Ladies' Garment Cutters' Union, Local 10
by Oneal, John
xii, 450 pp. "It is with a profound sense of gratification that the Executive Board of Local 10 has been able to publish this history of the organization for the membership. To make the occasion of the celebration of its twenty-five years of existence a memorable one, neither money nor effort has been spared to make this history of our local the most thorough one of this kind that has been published in this country. In this work will be found a record of the early beginnings of unionism among cutters, the trials, struggles, sacrifices, defeats and victories of the members; the problems of the union and of the industry, the expansion and development of the union, its various structural changes, and something of the men who have served the members during this past quarter of a century, as well as the battles waged by a loyal membership to make life more living for them and their families."
