Best article I have found on Operation PUSH:

Planning for the strike began around last Thanksgiving. An anonymous letter
was sent to the Campaign to Fight Toxic Prisons
<https://fighttoxicprisons.wordpress.com/2017/12/06/fl-prisoners-announce-operation-push-starting-jan-15-to-cripple-prison-system/>
(FightXPrisons)
and the Gainesville branch of the Industrial Workers of the World
<https://www.iww.org/> (IWW). IWW union members got involved with the issue
of prison labor, carrying forward their traditional support for workers
other sectors of the formal labor movement have tended to ignore.
