Sinyai, Clayton; Stafford, Pete; Trahan, Chris – McGill Journal of Education, 2013

Carter, Susan L. – McGill Journal of Education, 2013
In this article, I argue that a concentrated focus on everyday informal learning about unions is critical not only to re-thinking union education programs, but to the overall project of union renewal. The article offers, by way of example, an inquiry into the grievance system as a routine (and central) union practice and a key site of informal…
