The Structure of Unions

The Structure of Unions

| 11 min

This animated film examines the organization of labour unions today. While the narrator in all seriousness outlines the structure of a union and the larger bodies to which it is affiliated, the animator ad libs his own views with gay abandon. Examples are given to illustrate the functioning of a union at its various levels, from union local to national body to labour congress.
