How dispute mapping is used Dispute mapping brings the three previous maps together. When you look at the company map, the production map, and the union map, you can see where a company is vulnerable and where union action can be concentrated. This is the dispute map. Workers can’t afford long disputes with no pay, but companies can’t live without profi t either. Coordinated campaigns need to cause companies maximum loss of profi ts and prestige, so workers win disputes. The right people around the table At AAWL we learned that it was important to talk to the best placed comrades to achieve effective actions. We found these comrades in the course of our dispute mapping. We called them the right people around the table. Who are the right people around the table? They can be: • In genuine unions or labour movement organisations involved in the dispute, or • Able to discuss possible solidarity campaigns with other workers in genuine unions in the same company or the same industry • Well placed to be very effective in the dispute.
