Ellen Dawson wrote about her expulsion from the National Textile Workers' Union (NTWU). Her account of the NTWU convention provides a meaningful picture of the transition that was affecting the communist movement in the United States. One of the critical changes noted by Dawson was the way convention delegates were selected. Rather than being a worker-driven organization, the NTWU was transformed into a tool of the Communist Party.
