2 thoughts on “Sisters in the struggle: Unions and social work

  1. Kia ora Amy and thanks for these thoughts. Unions are all of the things you say and I think have an important place in our society, more so in times when so much that we have taken for granted is under threat. For those workers who feel or are silenced by contractual obligations to support their organisation unions become a vital lifeline to challenge. The power (and anonymity if needed) of the group means it’s less likely that individuals will be singled out. All of our professional codes give clear mandates for social action and social change and as a profession we need to get louder! Kia kaha to SWAN and the work already done and more to come.
