This is a compelling read. Macken speaks through the eyes of Billy Luscombe, an old union man who reviews and dreams of the past and the future of unions. Together, they examine the effects of the modern cultural changes on the union movement in Australia. They explain the nature of secular change and reviews the mistakes made by the unions in trying to handle such change. They point to successful unions and the reasons they have grown when other unions have declined.Optimistic about the future of unionism, they speculate on the differing forms such unions will take. Macken cleverly deals with the future of Australia's union movement in an entertaining way. This is a must read for unionists, industrial relations personnel and all Australians who care about rights, and all those who hope for the future.
