Description
This open access book investigates the role of collective bargaining in the gig economy. As with the labour movement historically, the big question is whether individual rights for workers in the digital economy can ever become secure and meaningful in the absence of collective rights. And, as with the labour movement historically, the role of workers on the ground in defining their own forms of organisation and bargaining units. Despite its European focus, this book offers a basis for addressing these questions in a way that SA policymakers could be persuaded by and part of. https://www.bloomsburycollections.com/book/collective-bargaining-and-the-gig-economy-a-traditional-tool-for-new-business-models/
