What are the priorities for labour law reform that will help unions and workers to rebuild and organise, so as to bring gig workers within the protection of employment and labour laws? We will be discussing various issues arising in Australia, Europe and the USA, exploring options such as multi-employer bargaining, realistic thresholds for establishing the right to bargain through non-ballot methods, union rights of access to and communication with workers, and removing limits on strike action.
We welcome labour lawyers from any and every country to join and offer their perspectives.
We will begin by discussing Anthony Forsyth’s new book available at: https://www.bloomsbury.com/uk/future-of-unions-and-worker-representation...
offering perspectives from the USA (Veena Dubal), Italy (Emanuele Menegatti) and the European Trade Union Institute (Silvia Rainone).
The session will be chaired by Tonia Novitz (University of Bristol, Centre for Law at Work).
