WorksForUs is an 18-month research project from Unions 21 and the Commission on Collective Voice in the 21st Century, exploring how collective voice can improve workers’ lives and support the economy.
Our research amongst unions in the UK and abroad shows evidence of how collective voice improves productivity and enhances wellbeing at work.
Our aim is to persuade Governments, employers and unions to collaborate on long-term strategies which thrive without political control.
The main outcomes for the project are:
- To identify the current understanding of employees, employers and public policy makers on the role and scope of collective voice and bargaining.
- To develop and promote workable mechanisms for collective voice for the 21st century.
The WorksForUs partnership with Coworker.org provides an online route for staff without a recognised union to make their collective voice heard and share their concerns with their employer.
By promoting and supporting these campaigns through Coworker.org, WorksForUs can help unions understand how to organise in new industries, and help workers recognise the benefits of making their voice heard through a union.
