One Day Longer

One Day Longer

A Memoir

Lynn Williams remains one of the most influential North American union leaders of the twentieth century. His two terms as president of the United Steelworkers of America, from 1983 until 1994, capped off a career in labor relations spanning nearly five decades. Among his many notable achievements, Williams developed new bargaining techniques to face challenges from antiunion politicians such as Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher. He also played a major role in the structural readjustment of the North American steel industry during its most turbulent period, the 1980s and 1990s.

In his memoir, Williams vividly recounts his life in labor, with all its triumphs, challenges, hopes, and dreams. While telling his own story, Williams also traces the rise and transformation of the labor movement from World War II to today. Providing an insider's perspective on union developments and issues, One Day Longer is a profound reflection of Williams's impressive career.
