Unionizing Against Cutbacks
When I first prepared this paper, "downsizing" was the watchword of the day. Today, it is clearer that downsizing is but one reasonably familiar tactic of capitalism in a continuing struggle over resources and power. Downsizing, layoffs, retrenchment, rif's, outsourcing, Naftaizing, privatizing... We need to think of these tactics not as independent phenomena but in the broader context of the corporatization of the university.
