China: "Railroaders’ Dispatch (铁路工人通讯)"
Quote:
Railroaders’ Dispatch (铁路工人通讯) is an independent periodical produced by and for Chinese railway workers since last summer (2015), with the aim of facilitating communication among railroaders of all categories and employment relations in the face of the industry’s profit-oriented restructuring and scattered resistance over the past few years.

This project seems to be inspired by certain labor initiatives in other countries, such as Railway Workers United, a cross-union rank-and-file organization in the USA . . .
