Investigating the workplace: a powerful and challenging approach to airport organising

Investigating The Workplace BookletInvestigating the workplace aims to stimulate discussion and provides a powerful, rank-and-file based and challenging approach to airport organising. Based on a participatory action research approach, it emphasises the vital importance of workers’ participation in investigating the workplace and their conditions, as the basis for building democratic worker organisation and unity. The booklet is based on experiences and learning from union organising at OR Tambo international airport in Johannesburg.
