Night Shift in a Pickle Factory – A Singlejack Little Book by Steve Turner. 1980.

Stan Weir published a few ‘little books’ in 1980 including Night Shift in a Pickle Factory. This booklet is Steve Turner’s recollection of his time in a pickle factory. This is a very quick read and there are echoes of the core themes one finds in Weir’s writings: informal work groups, sabotage, and humor. It’s a great example of workers’ writing. This book is common in the trade and also held in many institutions but had not been put online as of the time of writing. We have scanned a copy and posted it to Libcom (here).
