Singapore Chronicles – Trade Unions

Trade unions hold a special place in the history of the city-state. Occupying different camps on the left and right, past unionists’ struggles for social justice saw the rise of leaders who could move the masses. Here is a dispassionate look at the ideas and impulses of those who have defined today’s labour movement. But what of tomorrow? Can unions in general continue to play a key role as jobs everywhere are threatened by technological change and disruption? Some observers think Singapore might have an answer. This book dissects the issues.
