Workers have rights and entitlements that are established in laws, employment contracts, collective agreements and workplace rules, as well as in custom and practice (the way things are normally done – and have been done for a long time – in a particular workplace, industry or occupation). We say that workers have a grievance when they believe that some aspect of these is not being respected by their employer. Grievances are usually described as ‘individual’ when only one worker is involved and ‘collective’ when a group of workers all believe they are suffering from the same breach of the rules. Grievances relate to addressing infringements of existing rights and entitlements, from bullying or harassment, to underpayment of wages, refusal to grant rest periods, weekly rest days or public holidays, discrimination or underpayment of bonuses or other entitlements.

When and where we perform our work are two of the most fundamental characteristics of work in general. Historical developments have already caused these dimensions of work to evolve. They are continuing to do so, with profound consequences for the individual and society. Subsequent Issue Briefs elaborate on a number of related questions that might warrant attention to allow us to prepare for and shape the future of work we want.
