How should trade unions respond to the challenges of decentralised industrial bargaining and the Workplace Relations Act 1996? What can stop the decline in union membership? Reforming Australia's Unions is a comprehensive guide to this debate with a significant focus on union reform, workplace change, worker rights in a global economy and gender equity. Underpinned by key articles in Southland Magazine, each theme is introduced by experienced industrial relations practitioners who analyse the impact of labour market deregulation on the labour movement in the post-Accord era.
