Immaterial Labour Union 2015
The Immaterial Labor Union was born out of a desire to negotiate terms of service and push for the protection of personal data on a transnational scope, against avid, corporate social networking companies profiting from user-generated content. The Union aims, in the short-term, to readdress abuses concerning the unfair working conditions perpetrated through the processing of our online data, and in a long-term to conceive and shape alternative social networking solutions.
