Colonial Forms of Labour Organisation In Nineteenth Century Australia
AbstractAustralian unionism built upon strong foundations transported from Britain. Subsequently it grew beyond this base inscope and form. By 1890 the level of unionisation of the colonial workforce exceeded that in the mother country. This was mainly due to the upsurge of new unionism in the late 1880s. Although there were many parallels with the new unionism of Nritain, the colonial variant was more extensive, preceded the British version and demonstrated its distinctive characteristics, such as a national level of bureaucracy, earlier.
