A consequence of the recent financial crisis and its aftermath has been increased attention to the issue of inequality both as one of the underlying causes of the crisis itself, and as a problem that now threatens social cohesion the world over. This issue of the International Journal of Labour Research examines both dimensions of the problem and seeks to provide strategic perspectives to trade unions as they go about combating inequalities
