Fowke and Glazer 'Songs of Work and Protest' refer to quite a number. To cite a few:

Solidarity Forever - John Brown's Body which in turn was from 'Say Brother Will You Meet Us'

'Union Train' - 'The Old Ship of Zion' (this one?)

We Shall Not be Moved - I Shall Not be Moved

Casey Jones (trad) - Casey Jones - Union Scab (Joe Hill)

Roll the Union On - 'Roll the Chariot On'

Which Side Are You On - 'Lay Lily Low'/'Jack Munro'

'We Are Building a Strong Union' - We Are Climbing Jacob's Ladder

Dump the Bosses off Your Back - What a Friend we have in Jesus

There Is Power in the Union' -There Is Power in the Blood of the Lamb
