Julius Margolin, at 89, is a living legend in the New York City labor movement. He’s
been active since the 1930s in the CIO, National Maritime Union and Local 52 of the International Alliance of Theatrical and Stage Employees, which he has represented in the Central Labor Council for 32 years. A tireless fighter for justice, equality, and against war, Julius embarked on a new career in 1999, making music and CDs with George Mann
while still hitting picket lines and organizing workers in New York City
and around the United States.

"A Union Man: The Life and Work of Julius Margolin" is the story of his life through
his eyes as well as those he’s met along the way. Featuring guest appearances
by Utah Phillips, Faith Petric and former NMU Vice President Joe Stack, as well
as concert performances, it's an affectionate portrait of a rank-and-file activist
still fighting for justice as he approaches 90.
