Choke Points: Logistics Workers Disrupting the Global Supply Chain

Dear Colleagues,

Manny Ness has, yet again, produced a book (co-edited with Jake Alimoahed-Wilson) which reveals the startling, unyielding capacity of workers' agency in the context of global capitalism. Very much like my particular favourite, New Forms of Workers' Organisation, this book provides space for insights and argument directly from those groups of workers at key nodes, or choke points, in global supply chains.

Further details (and access to sample pages) is available here:

I was fortunate to get the chance to interview Manny when he was in the UK in 2014 to promote New Forms of Workers' Organisation. This was a particularly valuable opportunity for students of the MA ILTUS to spend time with him, and as the MA explored the future of trade unionism globally to gain his insight and perspective.

My interview with Manny is here:

In Solidarity
