The recent establishment of the Aotearoa Legal Workers' Union in New Zealand, and its proposed advocacy against minimum wage breaches and workplace sexual harassment and bullying, begs the question: why aren't more Australian lawyers joining legal-specific unions or starting their own such movements?

In this episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, Jerome Doraisamy is joined by Electrical Trades Union of Australia national legal counsel, Alana Heffernan, to discuss the issues in legal practice that may give rise to a need for a lawyer's union, how such advocacy could operate and how to overcome perceived issues with industry-specific unions.
