Publisher Description

An original and visually powerful exploration of unionism.

In our current political climate, people are looking for answers — and alternatives. The promise of unions is that their ‘members be unlimited’: that they don’t belong to the rich, the powerful, or special interests, but to all workers.

How did the idea of unionism arise? Where has it flourished? And what are its challenges in the 21st century? From Britain to Bangladesh, from the first union of the 18th century to today, from solidarity in Walmart China to his own experiences in an Amazon warehouse in Melbourne, comics journalist Sam Wallman explores the urge to come together and cooperate that arises again and again in workers and workplaces everywhere.

With a dynamic and distinctive art style, and writing that’s both thoughtful and down to earth, Our Members Be Unlimited serves as an entry point for young people or those new to these notions of collective action, but also as an invigorating read to those already engaged in the struggle for better working conditions — and a better world.

Must read

A beautiful and inspiring book which will inform both those who know nothing about unions, and those with years of experience. I found it fascinating as both an inside look at amazon, and how its monster sized delivery system works, as well as the author’s role in trying to set up a union in there. It’s also a fascinating look at the history of the working class!
Sam is a vital, upcoming voice in graphic novels and if you like Chris Ware, Joe Sacco, Jeffrey Brown, Marjane Satrapi, or the graphic novel “hypercapitalism” you will find something to love here!
