How To Win Strikes
Harry DeBoer was born in 1903 in Crookston, MN. In the early 1930s he began working in the coal yards in Minneapolis and became part of the initial organizing committee that led the famous Teamsters' truckers strike in 1934. DeBoer is credited with developing the "cruising pickets," a tactic that successfully stopped scab trucks. DeBoer remained true to his principles throughout his life, and in his later years counseled many young trade unionists on labor issues and strike strategy. His essay captures with crystal clarity the lessons that DeBoer and his revolutionary comrades learned from years of experience. It serves as a beacon of light for the working class today in its struggle to abolish exploitation and establish a genuinely free society.
