"On the Ground" charts labour relations in the airline industry, unravelling the story of how baggage handlers - classified as unskilled workers - built tense but mutually useful alliances with their skilled co-workers such as aircraft mechanics and made tremendous gains in wages and working conditions, even in the era of supposedly 'complacent' labour in the 1950s and 1960s. Liesl Miller Orenic explains how airline jobs on the ground were constructed, how workers chose among unions, and how federal labour policies as well as industry regulation both increased and hindered airline workers' bargaining power.
