This blog is written to support my former work at Ruskin College with trade unionists in the UK and internationally. Please feel to comment on, constructively criticise, and add to what is posted here. It is my hope that the blog posts encourage discussion and debate on how best to secure trade union renewal globally. I hope also to continue to support Ruskin's tradition of critical pedagogy in opening debate and dialogue in the pursuit of social, political and economic justice.
