  1. Hi Kati,

    I’m an academic based in the UK doing some research about labour movements and new media technologies. I would be really keen to talk with you about your work and about HacktheUnion. Would it be possible to arrange an interview via Skype or the phone?

    I’m happy to tell you more via email!

    Best,

    Lina
