By examining the link between school and trade union, within the context of the union movement, the logic of worker-promoted schooling is identified.

Gn this basis, the dissertation examines the concrete experience of teachers, worker-students, leaders and activists in their attempt to rebuild union the process of pedagogical production. Workers' education, here, becomes a blend between school book knowledg and practical knowledge attained daily at the workplace.
