Song of the Stubborn One Thousand: The Watsonville Canning Strike, 1985–1987 by Peter Shapiro

From 1985 to 1987, a thousand workers, mostly Mexican women, went on strike against Watsonville Canning. In an era when unions were struggling, and while unprepared and disorganized, the workers came together, organized, and held the picket line for 18 months, not breaking it once. While they ultimately triumphed, they also sacrificed and struggled. I’m thrilled to see this important chapter in Watsonville’s history added to the local history section. —Flannery
