Our work

New workers, new economies

In the upcoming period, it is clear that not only will the economic landscape change, but the types of work will alter. As a consequence unions will find membership decline in some areas, a shift of employer and organisation and also new areas untapped. Within this theme we will explore where the new jobs will be, who the workers are and evaluate the prospects for collective organisation.

Our current project is on the Changing World of Work which will highlight the growing employment areas, employment relationships and social views on unions.
