More than twitter: new union models for a new workforce

  • having a permanent contract one or a few employers in one core field or sector vs. having a series of temporary contracts, moving frequently between employers and sectors
  • working in a workplace where there is a union, volunteer reps and a recognition agreement so the company has to negotiate on pay and terms, vs working in a workplace where no-one is in a union and what the company decides is just how things are
  • growing up in a world where your parents and their friends were in unions, vs. growing up in a world where you know no-one in a union
  • living at a time when unions had a place in the national debate vs. living at a time when unions are less visible and their place in public life is contested
  • used to engaging with organisations via the post, the phone and face-to-face, vs. staying in touch with organisations digitally
