The future of worker voice
Trade union membership is in decline. With the changing world of work and with more remote and disparate workplaces, we need to rethink collective organising.
Below are a handful of the Award winners who are giving workers more voice over their terms and conditions. Organise are running single-issue campaigns that invite consumers to join causes, for example to end sexual harassment in the workplace. WorkIt, meanwhile, uses AI to inform workers about their rights. In the same vein, Contratados supplies migrants workers in the US with information about the behaviour of their prospective employers. IWGB is the first ever UK trade union with a collective bargaining agreement in the ‘gig economy’, with pathology services provider The Doctor’s Laboratory.
