Are Australian trade unions part of the solution, or part of the problem?

6 Feb 2015
Description

The failure of the modern economy to deliver widespread benefits for all is now widely recognised. Ordinary workers—those in the middle and lower parts of the income distribution—have limited access to resources and even more limited effective say. It was not ever thus, and the decline of unions is intimately connected with the rise of inequality. Can unions rise again? What would they need to do—and be, asks David Peetz in the Australian Review of Public Affairs (166).
