Trade Unions and the Global Crisis: Labour's Visions, Strategies and Responses [30 September 2011]
[full-text, 270 pages]

If the recent global economic crisis has debilitated labour in many parts of the world, many segments of the trade union movement have been fighting back, combining traditional and innovative strategies and articulating alternatives to the dominant political and economic models. This book offers a composite overview of the responses of trade unions and other workers' organizations to neoliberal globalization in general and to the recent financial crisis in particular.
