Unionizing, or the art of keeping worlds together

by Laurent Quintreau

Summary

Although everybody thinks they know to some extent what it means to unionize, nobody knows precisely what legal, economic or social flux might be generated, increased or halted by union activity. Nor do we know beyond, or perhaps despite, all the visible forms of unionizing (mobilizations, declarations, petitions, assignments) what greater collection of gestures and relationships might modify the texture of reality and set new norms to counter the instrumental logic of numbers and statistics. An essay by writer and trade unionist Laurent Quintreau.
