What’s the role of trade unions in the twenty-first century? Workers are facing the longest wage squeeze for 200 years and an epidemic of insecure work. And with many people worrying that robots could put them out of a job, it’s clear that workers need a strong voice more than ever. Kate Bell will discuss how trade unions can rise to that challenge.

Kate Bell is Head of the Economic and Social Affairs Department for the TUC. The Department leads the TUC’s work in many key areas of economic and social policy, seeking to influence public and political debate through a comprehensive programme of research, analysis and events.

This talk accompanies the TUC 150th Anniversary Exhibition.
