  Wiltrack, Bill United States
financial union member
Bill has been a member of five different unions throughout his lifetime. Presently an active member and Trustee with the Sheet Metal Workers Local #33 in Cleveland, Ohio. He has attended the George Meany Center-National Labor College and has been on the Organizing Committee of his local union. Bill looks at organized labor in a different way; as strange as it sounds he regards it as a religion. This has led him to advocate for a new system of organizing -- organizing from the inside-out -- which he hopes may lead organized labor to a new wave of interest by members and friends alike.

Windelov, Keirsten

New Zealand

foundation union member

Trade union official, currently working with PSA in New Zealand, following work with Prospect in the UK. Prior to this she was a high school rep, a student rep, a teacher's rep, a parliamentary services staff rep, and a public services union rep. Along the way she obtained a law degree, which has been a help at times, and a fine sense of humour. In fact this network began with a joke she made.

foundation union member

Agent provocateur. Zutalors (aka 'Dogenes') joined the New Unionism Network before our security procedures and initiation rituals were tightened up. As the only non-existent member, he/she/it is currently setting up a caucus to undermine our lack of structure. Please be very wary of anything this member has to say - Zutalors plays a devil's advocacy game, aimed at provoking maximum debate. You can contact The Secret Faction for the Non-Existent Internationale at: zutalors@newunionism.net
Only really yellow unions



* Voting rights are dependent on two conditions: confirmed identity and financial membership (by donation). If you cannot afford to make a donation we're happy to discuss other ways you can contribute... just contact volunteers@newunionism.net and we'll bounce around some ideas based on your skill set.

Although we usually give the name of the union to which our network member belongs, or for which they work, this should not be taken as an indication that this union endorses the network's principles. It should also be noted that there are some members who, for bona fide reasons of employment and/or personal security, have asked not to be included on this list. Where necessary we respect such requests.
