Ronald Reagan: union man

Reagan was a long time president of SAG, the Screen Actors’ Guild, or union. Here he is celebrating the Solidarity movement in Poland, which was the very beginning of the end of the Soviet Union. Solidarity was led by Lech Walensa, later President of Poland, but at that time a union boss. Regan: “Those workers remind us that where free unions and collective bargaining are forbidden, freedom is lost.” And that’s what Solidarity was fighting for – the right to collective bargaining.
