Research Topic:
Independent and migrant-led unions: Workers' struggle among private hire drivers

Research Details:
The research focuses on class struggle and workers' collective organisation within independent and migrant-led trade unions. It has taken the form of an ethnographic case study which seeks to understand what factors have facilitated class-based mobilisations and organisation among private hire drivers, and how these workers' relation to capital, the labour market, and position within society more generally has influenced their current form of collective organisation. This has constituted an analysis of class composition via a partisan and participatory methodological approach which has drawn on the method of workers' inquiry.
