Union Time: Fighting for Workers’ Rights follows the story of workers at the Smithfield Pork Processing plant in Tar Heel, North Carolina, who fought for safe, fair working conditions— and won. The core of the film is the voices of the Smithfield employees, many African American and Hispanic, who showed amazing courage in standing up to a multinational corporation. As employee Wanda Blue puts it: “I just had to get the fear out. Once I got the fear out of me, I was good to go. There wasn’t no stopping me.”
