One of the emerging features of the neoliberal landscape has been what many have come to label “financialization.” What do the “rise of finance” and financialization mean for trade unions, and especially those that name trustees to represent them on governing boards? Are there alternatives to sending union representatives and trustees to the usual business schools for “training” in how to navigate this new world?

Moderated by Sam Gindin. Presentations by:
