American Dream: Chronicles the six-month strike at Hormel in Austin, Minnesota, in 1985-86. The local union, P-9 of the Food and Commercial Workers, overwhelmingly rejects a contract offer with a $2/hour wage cut. They strike and hire a New York consultant to manage a national media campaign against Hormel. Despite support from P-9's rank and file, FCWU's international disagrees with the strategy. In addition to union-company tension, there's union-union in-fighting. Hormel holds firm; scabs, replacement workers, brothers on opposite sides, a union coup d'état, and a new contract materialize. The film asks, was it worth it, or was the strike a long-term disaster for organized labor?

I had been meaning to watch this for a while. The documentary chronicles the events and the atmosphere of the P-9 hormel labour movement in a very real and authentic way. Hindsight is 20/20 so it is very easy to criticise the strategy used, despite acknowledging how powerful a campaign it would have seemed to those involved. There really seemed like there was no long term strategic view, they wanted what they wanted and when presented with a realisation that this wasn't going to be met appropriate concessions were not made. Not the greatest documentary I have ever watched but it did win the Oscar so I would recommend it.
