GENERAL READING BOOKLET : From 1875, labor union and trade union movements began acquiring steam in America. Trade union activities started disrupting industrial production. At that time, the collective muscle power of organized crime syndicates was utilized to muffle the power of the labor unions. In particular, underworld mob factions were brought in to keep labor unions under check in New York.Traditionally, the Italian syndicates were more inclined to be anti-communist and anti-fascist than other syndicates. Syndicates with Italian roots were called in as strike breakers. Politicians of that era were quietly encouraging Italian mob syndicates to clandestinely control major labor unions and stamp out socialist movements. While secretly enjoying political patronage, Italian mob syndicates became very powerful in America. For a long time, politicians and law enforcement authorities maintained that there were no organized crime syndicates that were worthy of attention.
