Framing a New Doorway
This chapter is about 9to5, an association founded by women office workers in Boston in 1973 who pioneered a new form of labor organizing. The young women built on new consciousness from the women’s movement to use affirmative action suits, public opinion, and novel organizing tactics to win power in Boston’s banks, insurance companies, and universities. In 1975, the women formed a sister union, Local 925, with the Service Employees International Union (SEIU). They then replicated this dual structure on a national level by the end of the 1970s.
