    active as part of external collectivities

    Hi. Is this "active as part of external collectivities" means that some "external collectivities" are in the same time campaigning the same cases? Thank you.

    "In general, unions have been relatively late to embrace the rights of women, migrants and ethnic minorities, workers with disabilities and gays and lesbians; in all these cases, advocacy groups and organisations pre-existed trade union engagement. Moreover, in many cases those campaigning within trade unions for the rights of such groups are also active as part of external collectivities, hence bridging the different components of emergent alliances." (Trade Unions in Western Europe: Hard Times, Hard Choices)

    It means that many of the people inside unions campaigning on these issues are also involved in external groups like advocacy groups, etc.

    "Collectivities" is an odd word to me. I can't say I've ever seen it before.
