TRADE UNIONS

Trade unions hold a special place in Singapore’s history. Occupying different camps on the left and right, unionists’ past struggle for social justice saw the rise of leaders who could move the masses. A dispassionate look is taken at the ideas and impulses of those who defined today’s labour movement. Can unions continue to play a key role in the future as jobs are threatened by technological change and disruption? Some observers think Singapore might have an answer. This book examines the issues critically.
