SECTOR ORGANISING
DELEGATE STRUCTURES BEYOND THE ENTERPRISE

 

Multi-employer bargaining has the potential to achieve stronger outcomes for workers and our movement. Operating in new bargaining contexts is an opportunity to grow and build our members’ power and rights at work. As unionists, we will need to consider new ways of working, to be prepared to work in larger, and more distributed organising contexts.

This clinic will explore how we best use our internal resources as organisers and build our activist structures to be adaptive to challenges. Multi-employer bargaining poses new opportunities to bring delegates into strategy building and consider how we can allow for worksite autonomy and democracy while uniting on centralised strategy to strengthen our organising in the face of new challenges.
