New publication: ‘Exploring Trade Union Identities, Union Identity, Niche Identity and the Problem of Organizing the Unorganized’ by Bob Smale was published last week by Bristol University Press.
The labour market has changed over recent decades and so have trade unions with mergers, rebrandings, dissolutions and new unions being formed. The question is, how well positioned are unions to organize the unorganized? With more than three quarters of UK workers unrepresented, the growth of precarious employment and the gig economy this topical new book reports up-to-date research on union identities and what is termed ‘niche unionism’, while raising critical questions for the future.
