Australian Left Review

Union education in Australia is comparatively new. There is not a great deal of accumulated experience. So far there are intermittent schools and lectures and very little in the way of unionists embarking on extended study projects. This limited activity is proving very popular among union memberships and it is growing steadily. In February this year by far the biggest and best school yet was held in Canberra. It was organised and conducted jointly by the Australian Council of Trade Unions, Australian Council of Salaried and Professional Associations and the Council of Commonwealth Public Service Organisations. As well, response to the unions-sponsored correspondence courses, based in South Australia, has been excellent and shows the undoubtedly keen desire of unionists to improve their education.
