Project SummaryOne of the greatest questions facing the modern workplace is that of unions. It is the fundamental right of every individual to stand up for themselves, reducing inequality, increasing opportunity, and building lasting connections. Until now, unions’ clunky and outdated mixture of tools and procedures prevented workers around the world from accessing their rights. Communication between members and representatives is inefficient and often occurs across multiple platforms. This has left volunteer representatives struggling to balance their daily work with union responsibilities. Communication between members is also limited, creating a lack of member engagement in the workplace. Imagine if you had a social media platform for unions where people could discuss workplace issues and events, read relevant news, invite their friends, self-organize, and connect with local reps. That is what SpeakEasy offers: a way to transform unions into engaging communities that actually work for their workers.
