We need help from all people interesting in unions and union history. On Sunday, July 23 the Clinton Street Theater will be showing the film "A Union Man: The Life and Works of Julius Margolin." Please help spread the word by making a copy of the attached poster and showing to a friend or two.


A little about an ordinary soldier in the struggle for workers rights:

Julius Margolin, at 89, is a living legend in the New York City labor movement. He's been active since the 1930s in the CIO, the National Maritime Union and Local 52 of the International Alliance of Theatrical and Stage Employees, which he has represented in the NYC Central Labor Council for more than 32 years. A tireless fighter for justice, equality, and against war, Julius embarked on a new career in 1999, making music and CDs with George Mann while still hitting picket lines and organizing workers in New York and around the United States.
"A Union Man" is the story of his life through his eyes as well as those he's met along the way. Featuring guest appearances by Utah Phillips, Faith Petric and former NMU Vice President Joe Stack, as well as concert performances, it's an affectionate portrait of a rank-and-file activist still fighting for justice as he approaches 90.
