Can trade unions renew themselves?

This is the broad question put forward by a new blog called Union Renewal.

More specific questions asked include:

What is the trade union movement doing to organise young, minority and flex workers?

How does it cope with globlisation?

What are its activities at the local level?

How does it put social justice on the agenda?

The blog is run by Dirk Kloosterboer and Tonny Groen of the Netherlands Trade Union Confederation FNV and started earlier this month.

Of further note is also a link from the blog to a paper called Innovative trade union strategies (by Dirk Kloosterboer).
