As readers will notice from the post immediately below, Mark Bahnisch has joined the ever-growing team of Troppo bloggers.
Mark is employed at QUT as a sociologist, has a first class honours degree in Industrial Relations from Griffith and a Graduate Diploma in Industrial Relations (with Distinction) from QUT. He has published on union strategy, the politics of IR policy, and structural aspects of the sociology of work organisation. He has consulted to the Queensland Department of Industrial Relations on IR policy, and regularly does consultancy for private sector clients on IR and HRM issues. He currently teaches Industrial Relations at postgraduate coursework level, and has 8 years’ experience lecturing at undergraduate and postgraduate levels in IR and Employment Law.
Along with Don Arthur, Mark adds a fresh, challenging perspective to Troppo, allowing this armadillo to concentrate on my current primary project of building a new nest with jen (do armadillos have nests?), and yet another project best not mentioned yet.
