Rudolph the Reindeer
Solidarity Forever!
Rudolph the Union Reindeer 
Lyrics: Julie McCall 

Labor Heritage Foundation  


Rudolph the Union reindeer 
Pulled the sleigh for old St. Nick 
He signed a Union contract 
He knew North Pole politics

All of the other reindeer 
Worked long hours around the clock 
They paid no heed to Rudolph 
They worked in non-union shops

Then one year on Christmas Eve 
They all came to say, 
"We will do what you advise 
Rudolph, help us organize!"

Then how the reindeer loved him 
As they lined up with their sleigh 
Now when they work on Christmas 

They're all getting premium pay.
