Union relevance in Aotearoa in the 21st Century
For 20 years unions have been engaged in a struggle for relevance - relevance to both workers and the wider social and economic environment in which we organise. This lecture will look at possible futures for the union movement and the potential and need for workers to organise industrially and politically. More than ever we are dependent on what happens at work and what we get from doing it. The question is not whether we need unions, but what sort of unions we need.

The bar will be open from 5.30pm
A collection for donations to the Bruce Jesson Trust will be taken.
