Migratory Movements: the Position, the Outlook. Charting a Theory and Practice for Trade Unions
Immigration, the presence of foreigners or workers who are considered not to belong to the ‘traditional national or native’ community, has always constituted a challenge for organised workers and their unions. Confronting this challenge, the labour organisations have developed — or must develop — several different strategies. They have different objectives and are implemented at different times. The result is that these strategies can appear incoherent or even contradictory. In this chapter, we will try to see to what extent they are or are not incoherent or contradictory. The dimension of ‘time and moment’ is a strategic variable in understanding the coherence of these strategies.
