The Cargo Chain is an organizing tool for longshore workers that shows the players and pressure points in today’s globalized shipping network. How do commodities get from factory to shopping mall? Who really has the power to move today’s global economy? This fold-out poster will help you understand global supply chains and why workers building connections across industries can lead to better jobs.
This pamphlet was produced through a collaboration of CUP, the Longshore Workers Coalition, Labor Notes (a quarterly journal of labor journalism and research), cartographer Bill Rankin, and the graphic design office Thumb.
