  • Percy Sutton, a major Harlem political and business leader, and a lifetime union member who was once a radical socialist, would insist that Robinson was not antiunion. “Jackie Robinson wasn’t antiunion. He was hired to represent his company, just as the union leader represents his union. One of the things Jackie had to do was negotiate with the union. He did that. He wasn’t against the unions.”
