Pedigo describes the strategies he employed as a union organizer for the Textile Workers Union of America (TWUA) from 1939 until 1952. During those years he successfully organized a number of textiles plants. Here, he focuses on his work in Rome, Georgia, in order to explain how he worked to organize unions. Rather than going directly to the plants and talking to workers, Pedigo would circulate literature about the labor movement around the area and would wait for the workers to contact him. As such, Pedigo paints a portrait of his work as planting seeds from which grassroots movements could grow.
