Friend of ABA, Janneke Parrish, is self-publishing a new book about unions, now available for preorder—and we couldn’t be more excited for her.

Janneke Parrish is a tech activist and one of the founders of the tech union, AppleTogether. In 2021, her work at Apple made headlines around the world, and her case continues to impact the course of American labor law.

Parrish’s new book presents a brief overview of American labor law and how it relates to organizing and a step-by-step guide on how to form a union from conception to election. Plus, the book offers a framework for union-building at companies varying in size, from multinational orgs to startups.

Ethan Marcotte notes, “The Tech Worker Guide to Unions is shaped not only by Janneke’s own considerable organizing experience, but by the countless tech workers and movements she’s profiled in these pages.”

The Tech Worker’s Guide to Unions is Parrish’s first book and we hope you’ll buy it, read it, and put it to great use.
