Faced with changing labour markets, new employment patterns (e.g. temporary and precarious work) and declining union power and membership, trade unions need to (re)consider the ways in which they organise and mobilise workers. This policy brief argues that community-based organising offers trade unions a way of rebuilding the union movement by broadening its base to include other civil society organisations and patterns.
