Trade Union and Employment Forum

The Future of Trade Unions

3 September 2016 - 11:00 am - 13:00 pm

UNITE headquarters, Theobald’s Road, Holborn, London

Notwithstanding a truce during the EU Referendum campaign, the Government's relationship with trade unions has reached rock bottom with more restrictions aimed against them through the new Trade Union Bill 2016.  Trade union membership has remained fairly static over recent years and the changing face of work presents new challenges.

With this in mind, History & Policy’s Trade Union Forum will be hosting a half-day conference The Future of Trade Unions, where eminent speakers from both academia and trade unions will take stock of how trade unions’ relationship with government has evolved over time, and hypothesise as to where unions should go from here.

Confirmed speakers include:

Dave Ward, General Secretary of the Communication Worker’s Union – on the his union’s future in the now-privatised sector.
Dr. Alastair Reid, Life Fellow, Girton College, Cambridge & author of United We Stand: A History of Britain's Trade Unions– on how out of favour traditional union policies might fare in future union thinking
Siobhan Endean, National Officer for Equalities at Unite the Union – on what effect mergers and the role of “mega unions” can have in best promoting equalities in the entire trade union movement

The event will take place at UNITE headquarters, Theobald’s Road, Holborn, London on Saturday 3rd September 2016, from 11:00 – 13:00.

Admission is free of charge and a buffet lunch is included. Spaces are limited, so please reserve your place now.
