Autism educator Damian Milton (South Bank University, National Autistic Society) recently spoke with author Janine Booth about some of the issues raised in her new book, Autism Equality in the Workplace: Removing Barriers and Challenging Discrimination. During the interview Janine speaks at length about the importance of unions for employees with autism and how improved communication and understanding of autism by employers can benefit all workers.
Unionlearn is a great resource for trade union learning representatives, and for all trade unionists interested in gaining knowledge and skills and encouraging workmates to do so too.

At the launch of Janine’s new book she reassured those worried about it not containing enough hating of Tories that their concerns were unfounded. And I want to reassure readers that the polemical potency of the poetry is not poorly presented.
“Funny, biting and original.”

Janine's new poetry book will be out later this month, with a launch event at Housman's bookshop, King's Cross, London on Saturday 23 January, and a shedload of other appearances to follow.

Book review time. I first met Janine Booth when she was 16, when she came to interview me at a gig the night Brighton reached the FA Cup final in 1983, which means I don’t remember much about it.
