About the event

In this, the sixth event in the IER’s Covid webinar series, we rethink the structure of the public sector to build a fairer society.

Covid-19 has exposed the problems of privatisation and deregulation. Building a better future demands well-resourced, coordinated public services with trade unions at the negotiating table.
