Why We Still Need Unions 

Many people today seem to believe that while unions once performed a useful role in our society they no longer do so. This talk challenges these assumptions. It demonstrates that there is still a definite ‘union advantage’ in both wages and working conditions. This benefit is particularly significant for women and younger workers. As such the talk will seek to demonstrate that workers are as vulnerable today as they ever were to exploitation even if today that exploitation takes on somewhat different forms.
