China Labour Bulletin is open to trade unionists and labour activists from around the world who want to share their knowledge and expertise of labour organizing with China’s workers and, at the same time, learn more about the emerging workers’ movement in China. CLB can accept fellows from the international trade union movement for one week up to one month depending on need and availability. An interest in China and knowledge of Chinese is desirable but not essential. In addition, CLB is looking for international trade unions and labour organizations that would be willing to host Chinese workers and labour activists for a short period of time so that they can gain a firsthand knowledge of how real trade unions operate.
CLB is currently recruiting a new fulltime media officer. The main job duties of our new team member will be:
- Searching for and verifying incidents of strikes and protests posted on Chinese social media for our ground-breaking online Strike Map.
- Collecting and categorizing data for our online Work Accident Map.
- Writing Chinese-language news reports, commentaries and features on a wide range of labour issues, including labour organizing, work safety and the role of the trade union.
- Engaging with workers, labour activists and others on social media.
