Episode 4 - a bread and butter issue

UnionDays

Jun 22 2022 • 16 mins

Into the 1990s and beyond.  Demystifying Union Safety Reps, and how I broke the stereotype armed with just a white sliced loaf of bread.  Why  “elf n’ safey” isn’t just about bogs, basins and boring stuff. How we pushed back on a grand outsourcing plan so ill-conceived it nearly triggered a strike ballot amongst 100,000 employees - and the strange connection with Jermaine Defoe’s goal against Slovenia.

A Makes-You-Think production. Music by Scott Holmes. Companion blog here. Some names and other details have been changed. Got a story for the scrapbook? Tell us at info@makes-you-think.com
