Thanks to Tomboktu for noting this, from Jacobin, an interesting account of how in 1973 on the Skylab 4 mission there was something that almost, if not quite, amounted to a strike in orbit when, overworked, over managed and exhausted the three astronauts… well, read on and see how collective action, or even the threat of collective action, can have results. And not just in terms of workers conditions but productivity.
