About the Author

Phil Cohen left home at sixteen, managed a skid-row hotel and drove taxis in New York City before moving to North Carolina, where he became a union activist while working as a municipal bus driver.

In 1988 he joined the staff of ACTWU (now known as Workers United), from which he has since retired. His work resulted in landmark decisions by the National Labor Relations Board and OSHA. He continues to represent the union in arbitrations.

An accomplished singer-songwriter, he has recorded four albums with vocalist Patricia Ford.

WOW, what a GREAT story! This is REAL in every way, from all angles, especially the people, so marvelously portrayed in the swirl of events that never lets up. This book takes down any hype I ever heard about unions and speaks the plain TRUTH of what unions are actually about, and for, and DO for working folks. SO worth the read!!!

The Jackson Project is a hard hitting blue collar drama. It's raw and gritty like the Sopranos, and at the same time sensitive and insightful. This is a fast paced read that's hard to put down. The book seethes with the honesty of an author who doesn't pull any punches.
