What Will Make The World of Work Better in 2022? Paul Nowak of The TUC Explains

What would make me really happy is for the government to bring forward that employment bill and to talk to unions and employers in advance of them publishing a White Paper about what should go in it and I would like the Prime Minister to take his promise that we had around the Brexit debate about not just protecting employment rights, but extending and enhancing employment rights in this country.

Show notes

Union membership in the UK for last few years has been on the rise (albeit modestly). Trade Unions remain an important ‘Actor’ in how the UK employment market is regulated and their influence has been particularly prominent during the Covid 19 Pandemic in terms of their campaign to provide a decent level of statutory sick pay for all workers. On a more macro level, the TUC has also been extremely vocal about structural issues within the UK employment market and in particular how certain employers within the ‘Gig Economy’ have been seen to avoid their responsibilities by offering what he describes as ‘bogus self-employment’.
