Not sure if I'm on the right track, but are you describing "Sea Glass" by Anita Shreve? Maybe not, if you believe the novel was written some time ago.

Thanks, but no. Actually it was a few years ago that I was trying to remember this book, and it was reading Sea Glass--very good read--that reminded me of the older one.

Jack London has a number of books dedicated to that topic. "The Iron Heel" comes to mind (the book I had to read for college). Upton Sinclair had an enormous number of books on the subject, a Pulitzer prize winner or two among them - perhaps this Wikipedia link will help jog a memory:

I am currently reading the Adventures of Augie March and there is quite a long bit about Communist Party activity and Union organization about halfway through. It's a Saul Bellow set in Depression era and written in 49 I believe.

Jailbird is Vonnegut's major union book, and made me think of the setting you described, but like so many of his books I couldn't finish it so can't really say.

Making Sense of the Molly Maguires or The Molly Maguires. But they were actually set too early for the time frame you are suggesting. Oh--1 is an actual history of the movement, the other is a novel about them

Also, we generally move threads to the Abandoned folder if there hasn't been a post in two years.
Note to others: I tried to send a message to Carmel, but was not able to.
