About the book

The world of work has changed and with it the nature and role of the workforce. For the UK’s 31 million workers, many of the changes have had a devastating impact on their working lives and their living standards. Britain’s workers are amongst the most insecure, unhappy and stressed workers in Europe.

The law needs to change. This Manifesto offers 25 major policy recommendations for consideration. It proposes changing the way in which working conditions are regulated by embedding the voice of workers at national, sectoral and enterprise levels. It moves responsibility for workplace regulation from legislation to collective bargaining. It calls for a Ministry of Labour and a National Economic Forum; sectoral collective bargaining; the repeal of the Trade Union Act 2016 and the introduction of fundamental and enforceable rights for workers.

This is a timely, authoritative and extremely important contribution to the debate on the future of the world of work.
