Abstract: This thesis is a study of the goals and strategies of full-time, paid labor union staff. The thesis is based on seven open-ended, qualitative interviews with full-time staff of two local educational unions. I show that their socioeconomic class is an important factor in determining staff members� initial goals but that it becomes less important over time. Initially the participants from lower-middle-class background are more concerned with everyday issues such as wages and avoid aggressive strategies. The participants from upper-middle-class backgrounds are initially interested in broader social change and are more receptive to aggressive strategies. Over time each group is socialized to understand the other group�s point of view and change their goals and strategies accordingly.
