Event description

Description

You're invited to the Unions 21 Annual Conference at ITF House on Tuesday May 21st.

This year, we'll be exploring how to reinvigorate unions, particularly how collective voice can overcome issues workers face now and in the future economy. Bringing together trade unions, politicians, academia and partner organisations to discuss the future of work, we'll be looking at how unions, employers and policy-makers can extend worker voice.

We'll also be discussing the initial findings from our forthcoming new report 'WorksForUs', the first report from the Commission on Collective Voice in 21st Century.
