Lucien van der Walt on Renewal and Crisis in South African Labour

Lucien van der Walt. 2017. Renewal and Crisis in South African Labour Today: Towards Transformation or Stagnation, Bureaucracy or Self-Activity?, Pambazuka News 436(1).
Abstract: South African unions are large but fragmented, substantial but politically weak. They represent different political traditions and all are marked by serious organisational problems. They have little impact on the official public sphere. The unions need to work towards realizing a stateless, classless, self-managed society without hierarchy, based on political pluralism and freedom.
