Overview

We are interested in examining in more detail critical questions about the present crisis that unions face, the future of collective bargaining and the inter-relationships between unions, the state and employers. In the immediate past, given the Australian political context, the impact of legislative change upon workers, unions and collective bargaining has been the primary concern. We are now locating these studies in wider international settings, changes in domestic politics and going on to examine the future of employee voice and collective bargaining.
