Nice to hear from you.
I believe you're still in Oz - presume your kids are now grown-up and independent, as are mine.
I think I just missed you in Seoul.
Interested in SIGTUR, so maybe our paths will cross again.

My NUW work involves organising poultry industry (from farm to supermarket shelf); pharmaceutical; storage, warehousing and distribution; rubber, plastics and cable-making; food manufacturing; contract call centres; market and social research industry.
Two global companies I organise are Pfizer and DHL.
My personal email is firstname.lastname@example.org and our institute's email is email@example.com. I'm sure you're schedule will be very full while you are here but I hope we can meet up. In the meantime, let me tell you that we will be holding a small workshop on resistance to transnational corporations At 5pm on Nov. 8th. I will most more info on the transnational corporations group once it is ready. If you have time, please try to make it.
I'm working in the Victorian state office of the NTEU as Senior Industrial Officer, so I'm doing lots of collective bargaining, lots of coordination work, some casework and tons of advice. Being in a state office I'm a bit removed from the Union's international work - national office gets the formal engagement with EI, etc, and the branches carry the rank-and-file solidarity role.
But I DO get the occasional opportunity to participate in (mostly east Asia/pacific) forums, and of course to play a role in ensuring that visiting union and solidarity comrades get out to our branches, to meet both university staff and students.
