This paper illustrates the concept and implications of ''adversary accounting'' in the context of both ''intra-capital'' and ''capital-labour'' disputes. Informed by a small pilot study on the uses made by unions and their approaches to financial information, we explore whether accounting techniques and financial information are necessarily ''capitalist'' tools or whether they can be used ''strategically'' or ''adversarially'' by anyone with the access, skill and will to turn them to their advantage.
