The Little History of Australian Unionism

The Little History of Australian Unionism relates the purpose, history and achievements of unions. It explains why workers have formed their own organizations, how they haven been sustained, and what they have won.

Illustrated by Bruce Petty, this book is important for anyone who cares about the changing workplace and the role of workers in it.

Sean Scalmer’s incisive account provides a history of trade unions that is clear, accurate and engaging. He recorded their achievements, explains how they were won, and provides an invaluable context for the urgent defense of the union movement.

The history of trade unions is more than a record of sacrifice and achievements; it is an account of the lessons of the experience, and a precious resource in mobiling support for the union movement as it responds to the present attract on their very rights to organise and represent workers.
