Abstract

In Britain, sex workers – unlike other workers – find they have a combined, triple hurdle to overcome in order to secure representation of their collective labour interests through unionisation. Based on research from his new book, Gregor Gall outlines how, due to the nature of the industry, the notion of occupational unionism may have some particular purchase as opposed to workplace unionism.
