Can Women's Structures Help New Zealand and United Kingdom Union Revival?
Union decline in the UK and NZ is a familiar story. Drawing on NZ research and an advanced UK project involving two national surveys, interviews and documentary evidence, this paper examines the relationship between union women's structures and union revival efforts. It emerges that, mediated by context; women's structures contribute to revival strategies, not just in terms of quantitative and external outcomes, but in the qualitative processes of engaging members. Findings inform a discussion of future directions for revival strategies and gauges of union vitality.
