Unionists are community members. The question we have to ask is how do we keep the links between our work as unionists and our work as active progressive citizens alive and open? How can community activists, often involved in struggles that affect the broad community and social infrastructure, keep the union movement informed and connected to these struggles? Perhaps it is useful to look at the arenas we predominantly work in as for many, these are often related to our paid work.
