The emergence of labor unions from within hong kong's protest movement

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    Although Hong Kong historically has a weak trade union culture, in mid-2020 activists in the movement turned to demanding union representation and began forming dozens of small unions from the ground up. Within a few months of their existence they were able successfully to mount an important strike protesting against the government’s policy to deal with Coronavirus pandemic. But since the passing of the National Security Law in July, the unions’ future is fraught with challenges.
