Description

  • Rosa Crawford - Policy Officer, Trades Union Congress

This event will explore the new insecurities migrant and local workers are experiencing after the Brexit vote and consider how trade unions should respond to combat this insecurity and associated exploitation. The event will feature examples of work by trade unions and allies in NGOs and community groups to organise insecure workers. It will discuss how this work can be built on to foster solidarity between migrant and local workers to combat anti-migrant rhetoric that has grown in the post-Brexit vote environment.

This event is part of the TUC's Rethinking Organising series. It will showcase new resources the TUC has developed to support organising migrant workers that include the 'Working in the UK' guide to employment rights available in 21 languages (www.tuc.org.uk/workingintheuk).
