Flexible work and its consequences: historical perspectives

Trade Union Forum

On 6 April 2017 Noel Whiteside, Professor of Comparative Public Policy at the University of Warwick and Sally Brett, Head of Equality, Inclusion and Culture at the British Medical Association discussed flexible working now and in the past.

Organised by the Trade Union Forum.
