Workable Books - GFTU Publishing

New internationalist

We launched a new publishing imprint for trade unionists last year and our first publication was on trade union education and how it can be adapted to become more powerful in the years ahead

This book has inspired new courses to train people to become better mentors in the trade union context.

This year we have published a graphic novel on the history of The Labour Movement called “The Many Not The Few”.
