The Trade Union Educational League was founded in late 1920. It was supported by the Communist Party USA and a majority of members were also members of the Communist Party USA. Its goal was to build a union and workers’ movement. This pamphlet emphasizes the importance of organizing as many workers as possible for the survival and growth of the workers’ movement.
