Good work and jobs should be the cornerstone of the UK economy and not just an aspiration of the trade union movement. Unlike other civic institutions, unions are best placed to work to improve working lives. Under this theme, we will be exploring how unions can improve the employment experience of all working people.
Our current project is Brexit, Devolution and Collective Bargaining which will review the proposed political and industrial mechanisms within the UK, exploring the impact on bargaining outcomes and the efficacy of unions in engaging in this process. The impact of Brexit on these deals and local economies will also be explored.
