Abstract

Movement and trade union participation seems to follow very different logics. They differ in their organizational structure; underlying democratic principles and motives of collective action. Indeed, both social movement and industrial relations literature, have stressed that trade unions and social movements represent distinct collective action forms. Still, we can observe that people are active in both. This panel compares the different modes of participation in movements and unions and asks about the causes and consequences of overlapping membership or multiple belongings. It welcomes papers that investigate if and how multiple belongings influence the type of participation and the ways multiple belongings contribute to the diffusion of knowledge, tactics or ideologies.
