From acclaimed Chicago filmmaking collective Kartemquin Films (Hoop Dreams) comes a collection of three important Labor Stories of the 1970s. These films not only allowed the workers and their unions to tell their compelling stories but they also affected the course of events for each union. HSA Strike - 75 documents a group of doctors who strike for the right to unionize at Chicago's Cook County Hospital. U.E. Wells captures the United Electrical Workers' efforts to organize a cast-iron foundry. Finally, What's Happening at Local 70 follows the experiences of unemployment compensation workers who strike because of working conditions.
