The coronavirus crisis has exposed how reliant everyone is on working people but how little so many of them have been valued in our poitical and economic system.
The working conditions, pay, and status of many of these workers demonstrate especially how undervalued they have been by government.
We can’t go back to an economy that fails to meet our basic needs and puts our future at risk. We’re not going back. But where are we going?
We all need work, and decent work, to feel secure. We need jobs that can be protected, earnings we can count on, and sufficient hours of employment.
This session will consider some of the policy interventions needed to empower workers: trade union rights, a single worker status, a real living wage and sectoral collective bargaining.
Claim the Future, led by John McDonnell MP, sets out to develop some of the solutions needed to reframe our economy and bring people together to secure change.
Join John McDonnell, Rebecca Long-Bailey, Dave Ward and Mark Serwotka at 5pm on Tuesday 15th September.
