The rebalancing act: How we create a fairer economy

Meeting Room 6, the Brighton Centre

Unions21 brings its influential publication, Rebalancing the Economy, to the TUC fringe with one core argument — that there is nothing inevitable about Britain’s regional divisions in growth, investment, housing and education. This meeting will focus on the divisions that beset Britain and the need for achievable approaches to address them.

Tea, coffee and refreshments — hot dogs or seasonal vegan soup and bread and brownies.

Tim Page, TUC senior policy officer — manufacturing, industrial, transport and economic policy

Alison McGovern MP, shadow treasury minister
