What now for trade unions?

“Helpfully Controversial”
“Informative and engrossing”
“Interesting content, delivered well”

Just some of the comments from delegates who attended the latest IER conference in the North West, where an excellent platform of speakers discussed political, strategic and legal issues facing trade unions and their members

Steve Farley, North West TUC, opened the morning with a fact-packed summary of the current economic situation. This was followed by a thought provoking and self proclaimed ‘controversial’ talk from Robert Monks, General Secretary of URTU. Both speakers clearly engaged delegates, and the question and answer session generated a good deal of delegate comment on ways to engage with younger people, develop better relationships with members, and improve recruitment.
