Trade Union and Employment Forum


The Future of Trade Unions


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 hosted a half-day conference The Future of Trade Unions on 3 September 2016, where eminent speakers from both academia and trade unions took stock of how trade unions’ relationship with government has evolved over time, and hypothesised as to where unions should go from here.
