Abstract

The chief losers at the Cleveland convention of the CIO were the workers. And they took quite a beating. Although perfunctory resolutions were passed on wages, organizing the unorganized, and labor unity, there was absolutely no discussion of those basic trade-union subjects. Instead, the vast majority of delegates, paced by Philip Murray, went on a five-day orgy of attacks on the Left.
