On a vibrant orange background, a cream outline of a megaphone has additional cream speech bubbles tumbling out of it. A white stripe across the image reads #22: ORGANISE & MOBILISE in bright red writing

We’re dedicating issue #22 to two tenets of unionism: organisation and mobilisation. We want to receive narratives, fragments, and images which speak to your experiences of resistance and solidarity in the workplace.

What wins and losses have you and your co-workers endured? What relationships have grown from collective action? What does the landscape of labour look like and what vision do you and your comrades have to change it? Let us know!

Submissions are open until 11.59pm (AEDT) Sunday 25 April 2021!
