Make Bosses Pay: Why We Need Unions

by Eve Livingston - £9.99  Pluto Press (2021)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780745341620 | ISBN 10: 0745341624

With the world changing at breakneck speed and workers at the whim of apps, bad bosses and zero-hours contracts, why should we care about unions? Aren't they just for white-haired, middle-aged miners anyway? The government constantly attacks unions, CEOs devote endless time and resources to undermining them, and many unions themselves are stuck in the past.
 
Despite this, inspiring work is happening all the time, from fast food strikes and climate change campaigning to the modernisation of unions for the digital age. Speaking to academics, experts and grassroots organisers from TUC, UNISON, Acorn, IWGB and more, Eve Livingston explores how young workers are organising to demand fair workplaces, and reimagines what an inclusive union movement that represents us all might look like.
 
Working together can change the course of history, and our bosses know that. Yes, you need a union, but your union also needs you!
