This workshop will bring together researchers and practitioners. It will look at some of the most recent research and thinking on the current situation facing unions as they seek to protect the interests of working people and their families, and draw on the experience of recent initiatives in the US and Europe to search for a way forward.

The workshop will cover a number of broad themes:

  1. Growing Inequality: pay and the social wage
  2. Countering Inequality: unions, the state and social partnership
  3. Participation, Skills and Productivity
  4. Structural Problems Facing Unions
  5. Agenda for the Future: what should unions and governments do to combat inequality?



This event will take place in 32L 1.04, 1st Floor Conference Room, LSE, 32 Lincoln's Inn Fields, London WC2A 3PH.
