The 2022 edition of the International Journal of Labour Research comes at a critical time, marked both by multidimensional crises affecting many countries around the world and by a surge in the attraction and influence of trade unions in responding to these crises.
Trade Union Revitalization: Organizing new forms of work including platform workers, highlights the experiences of trade union revitalization worldwide with an emphasis on trade union unity and cooperation and the challenge of organizing new forms of work including platforms workers where young people are over-represented. The 2022 edition of the journal contains a series of recommendations to strengthen trade unions. These include moving towards unity by collaborating within the labour movement to reach common positions, extending unionization to groups in vulnerable situations, and addressing strategic objectives such as the creation of decent employment, decent work deficits, low wages, the impact of climate change and gaps in social protection.
To stimulate the discussions and research on the challenge of revitalization within the trade union movement, the ILO’s Bureau for Workers’ Activities (ACTRAV) will organize a Labour Research Journeys in April 2023. This series of events will bring together authors, researchers, academics, ILO representatives and leaders from trade unions.
