Labourers in American West Coast agricultural fields and Alaska salmon canneries found themselves confined to exploitative low-wage jobs in racially segregated workplaces as well as subjected to vigilante violence and other forms of ethnic persecution. In time, though, Filipino workers formed political organisations and affiliated with labour unions to represent their interests and to advance their struggles for class, race, and gender-based social justice. 'Union by Law' analyses the broader social and legal history of Filipino American workers' rights-based struggles, culminating in the devastating landmark Supreme Court ruling, Wards Cove Packing Co. v. Atonio (1989).
