Publisher's Synopsis

Threads of Labour presents new empirical research by a network of garment workers' support organizations and makes sense of global supply chains from the bottom up.

  • Presents new empirical research by a network of garment workers' support organizations in ten different locations in Asia, Europe and Mexico.
  • Creates a blueprint for conducting worker-orientated action research in order to better understand and resist the negative impact of globalization on labour.
  • Ensures that workers' voices reach those who are already trying to reconfigure global capitalism in more humane directions.
  • Explores the ways in which workers might begin to develop new forms of organization that are more suited to securing gains in the global garment industry.
  • Bridges the gap between activist and academic research, improving the conversation between these two groups.
