Unionism is an ideology promoting Unions' and Workers' Rights over Capitalism and the Rich. It is a revolutionary leftist movement whose outspoken goal is to overthrow the capitalist order and establish workers' control over the means of production. Its practice is diverse, from decentralized, democratic models to Dunham's approach of using strong state power, but overall it bears resemblance to OTL's Syndicalism.

The three most important nations practicing Unionism are situated near the Pacific, Liist China, Shankarist India and Oceania. The ideology has not expanded out of Eastern Asia and the Pacific, however, mostly due to Western anti-Unionist sentiments - Germany and the US, along with their allies, have managed to become wealthy and democratic enough to make Unionist revolution seem unnecessary, even among the poorer strata of the proletariat.
