New Podcast: Unions21 Conference 2019 and the Future of Collective Voice

This is the first of two podcasts capturing the highlights of our 2019 conference, held last month at the splendidly refurbished offices of the International Transport workers’ Federation (thanks very much for having us).

Part 2 will look at the Future of Work and the impact of digital tech and AI. Thisepisode is all about that other burning issue – collective voice in the 21stcentury. We hear from Mike Clancy, Andrea Genaro, Mel Simms and Danny Mortimer, all under the watchful eyes of Baroness Margaret Prosser and U21 Executive Director Becky Wright.

There are also contributions from Denise Linay, Betsy Dillner, Nick Child and Judy Shaw.  A full running order is below.

With the report from our Commission for Collective Voice being published on 26 June, this podcast is the perfect companion, explainer and foil. You can join the debate by emailing us at info@unions21.org.uk, or tweeting us @unions21. We’d love to hear your views.

You can access all Unions21 podcasts here.

Please download, stream, share, like, subscribe, review, but above all, enjoy.
