The Covid-19 pandemic has not only exposed the vulnerability of workers all around the continent, but also the ability of the trade union movement in Africa to represent and organise workers when traditional interactions are not feasible. This report explores how trade unions have responded to this challenge and moved to new forms and tools of communication. In addition, it contains some practical suggestions for emergency online solutions.
