Are you a Union representative?
This is one of the roles that will be more affected by the DiDIY phenomenon. Most of the typical union themes are obsolete. For example: physical protection, roles and career definition, training and development plans, alienation, depersonalization stress, repetitiveness of actions, working time, control, collective representation.
Since the content of the professional activity is undergoing radical changes, so the Union Representative role must change. The DiDIY project addresses this issue and attempts to provide guidelines to answer to several questions:
In the context of DiDIYers, which is the new role that union must adopt? Or better, which categories of workers must be defended by unions?
Collective activities are marginal, individual peculiarities characterize the new workers. Do workers still need a collective representation? If so, which might be the best focus for union representatives?
