About the Author: Perel L. Blakely served his Union Shop Steward for the Local Teamsters Union in Pittsburgh for many years before becoming a writer. While working for a local beverage company in Pittsburgh, he fought the company on everything from petty grievances, firings that led to arbitration hearings and even negotiating contracts between the Union and the beverage company. Through this experience he gained insider knowledge that most employees never get. He had to deal with corruption from not only the company, but his own union officials as well.
This book is Perels way of exposing some of the dirtier tactics that the company and the unions used to get contracts pushed through. This is his attempt to shed some light as to what has happened to the strong unions of the old days and exposing them for what they have become today: a greedy corporation, just like the companies they pretend to protect you from.
