TUC President Lesley Mercer, from the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy, reports on the 20th anniversary conference of Unions 21 last Friday. She spoke too, and you can see her remarks on YouTube.
Great theme. Great conference. The first instalment of an inquiry into how the tide can be turned on unfair work was launched. Drawing on polling results from Survation, the report looks at how the gap in pay and power in UK plc can be addressed. It argues that high performing and fair workplaces, in step with Europe, are key to a sustainable recovery. The polling suggests that public support for this could be won, but only if workplace concerns are given a higher priority by the political parties.
