The legendary Bob Carnegie, the IWW, the trade unions, and climate change

Left to right: Jaxom, Bob, Feargal

We've got another long show this week as we fill in for Echo Boom after they had their final show last week. Since Bill was off fighting for RAFFWU members we had Jaxom fill in for him.
We are joined by Bob Carnegie, former state secretary of the MUA, member of the IWW, and long-time working class activist, to discuss various topics including the IWW in the US, climate change, the state of trade unions in Australia and their future.
We also discuss solidarity unionism, and workers actions from the TWU, the ETU, the brand new UWU, and more.
