dc.description.abstractAustralia has long had an institutionalised structure for localised union activity in the form of regional labour councils. Based on an empirical study of such councils in Queensland, this paper examines the role of these local bodies in creating conditions at a local level that support union movement strategy. Following the work of Briggs, and Ellem and Shields, regional labour council agency is explored in three areas: mobilisation, exchange and regulation. The study finds that while regional labour councils face a variety of industrial and structural challenges in these respects, they perform important functions and provide the nucleus for a more broadly based union movement.en_US
