In line with very many countries world wide, Australian unionists will be celebrating the 100 year anniversary of the death, some would say murder, of Joe Hill in Salt Lake City in 1915. I'm sure others on Mudcat will be in the same boat, but already have their concert programme finalised, unlike us here in the small isolated town of Cairns, where the decision to hold an event is only a week old. So, I'm already behind the eightball and am hoping that 'catters can come up some ideas of union songs suitable for a small group of non-singers and especially, strident poems of working life. I do already have quite a swag of both, along with everything that Mr Hill wrote himself, but there must be heaps that I haven't got or even know about.
For those that are 'anti-union', please find another post to vent on.
Yours in Union

Thanks for the advice Gerry - here goes
Union Maid, Which Side Are You On, Working Class Hero, There is Power in a Union, Union Burying Ground, Joe Hill (seems to fit somehow!) probably in the style of John McCutcheon rather than Paul Robeson, Solidarity Forever (how relevant that this song is also 100 years old this year), Casey Jones - the Union Scab, The Preacher and the Slave, Part Of The Union, There is Power in a Union, Join Your Union, Bring out the Banners, Stand Together, Ballad of 1891, The Eight Hour Day, If It Weren't For The Union, Join The Union, Roll The Union On. Geoff Goodfellow, the 'Workers Poet' from South Autralia, has kindly given us free rein to use his material, and Timothy Mason is also happy to contribute - and then there are Joe's own poems too.
Any tips on how to get macho unionists to join in and sing as a group would be appreciated too - we had Danny Spooner in 2007 for our innaugural singing group on the Labour Day March, but he's not free to join for this event. Shortly thereafter the group fell by the wayside, but on the day - WOW!!

When I was researching the life of the English communist writer Ralph Bates I was told the following story by a friend of one of Ralph's brothers:

"As a young man, Ralph Bates had gone to Montana, where he joined the "Wobblies". There Ralph worked organising a union in the copper mines, but a comrade was murdered by the mine bosses and Ralph was told to leave, otherwise he would be thrown down a mine shaft."

I know that Ralph Bates never went to Montana during this period of his life and I do rather wonder if this apocryphal tale was based on the story of IWW member, and political song-writer, Joe Hill (1879 – 1915), who was executed in Utah on a trumped-up murder charge. The song "Joe Hill" (which begins with the lines I dreamed I saw Joe Hill last night/Alive as you and me/Says I, "But Joe, you're ten years dead"/I never died says he, I never died says he) became extremely popular within British left-wing groups from the 1940s onwards, so did somebody in England link Ralph Bates, who did go to live in America in 1941, with Joe Hill? And is this a case of folkore in the making?

These were the songs performed at Joe Hill's funeral in Chicago;
Workers of the World Awaken, The Rebel Girl, There is Power, Stung Right and The Preacher and the Slave.

After the funeral, the casket was taken to Gracelands Cemetery, where short speeches were made in nine foreign languages and singing continued until it was dark.

You might find Ray Herne's "Calling Joe Hill" of use. Ray was looking for inspiration when writing a mining and/or steel works song when he wrote this.
He does a good version himself as does Roy Bailey, you will probably find a version on youtube.

Minor thread drift: For those not familiar with it, I highly recommend William M. Adler's 2011 book "The Man Who Never Died: the Life Times and Legacy of Joe Hill".

RE: the Ralph Bates story, he may simply be conflated with someone else, as Hill was only one of a goodly number of I.W.W. organizers murdered throughout the West in the first quarter of the 20th Century, e.g. Frank Little, who was lynched in Butte, Montana in 1917.

Thanks-

Well, I'm speechless! While researching the Joe Hill story, I've found other, sadly unknown to most of us, heroes of the union movement during that turbulent and violent period of American union history. The Ludlow Massacre in 1914 was the bloodiest event of the 14 month coal strike in southern Colorado, during which 19 men, women but mainly children died, including a union organiser called Louis Tikas who was was shot and killed. This grievous massacre spawned a powerful song from the late and great Woodie Guthrie which I've been listening to for years from Dick Gaughan's 'Call It Freedom' album. It's one of the songs on that CD that always made me sit up and take notice, but till now, I hadn't followed up on the story.
Yes, I know there's a bit of thread creep happening here, but in the overall scheme of things, not a great deal and in a good cause.

Obscure fact: the writer Joe Hill, son of Stephen King, was named after the Joe Hill. So if anyone is running any gigs near where he's promoting his books, he might like an invitation, perhaps!
