About this item

Scholars in the humanities and social sciences, journalists, and activists show how workers around the world are bypassing the conventional labor unions that neoliberal capitalism and non-democratic governance have neutralized, and engaging in radical democracy that often begins on the shop floor and spreads to the streets and squares and sometimes even to the palaces. They cover workers' self-organization beyond and against corporate unions and the state, non-corporate unionism and social movements, and renewed forms of struggle and workers' self-management. Among their topics are autonomous worker committees in Marikana: South African journey to the mountain, Greece: grassroots labor struggles in a crisis-ridden country, Sinaltainal: transforming the workers' movement in Columbia, the labor dispute in Berlin's Babylon Cinema, and sweat and detergent not bread and roses: Latin cleaners struggle for dignity behind the shiny surface of London's financial industry.
