Chapter Three chronicles the first five days of the 1970 nationwide postal wildcat strike. It spread from New York City as postal union branches and locals across the nation debated and voted. In the end, almost one-third of the workforce walked off the job. NALC Branch 36 and the Manhattan-Bronx Postal Union led the rank-and-file effort, with prominent roles played by Vincent Sombrotto (NALC) and Moe Biller (MBPU).
