Following publication of their CLASS/Institute of Employment Rights publication, Trade Unions and Economic Inequality (2014), Dr Lydia Hayes (Cardiff) and Professor Tonia Novitz (Bristol) will be speaking to students and members of the public at UCL. This panel discussion will be chaired by Professor Keith Ewing (King's College London and President of the Institute of Employment Rights).
The two speakers will detail some of the economic and social achievements of trade unions, and reflect on the key regulatory reforms necessary to renew their ability to address inequalities.
