The Future of the Trade Unions

Add to calendar

After a decade of wage stagnation, it’s clear that workers need a new deal. With the growth of insecure work, declining union membership, and the rapid transformation being spurred on by the fourth industrial revolution, it has never been more important for workers to get organised. It’s time for unions to come together and develop a bold new strategy to address the imbalance of power in today’s economy. Join trade union General Secretaries and activists to discuss strategies for strengthening workers’ power.
