Trades unions in the 21st century, Ruskin House, Mar 14

The Croydon TUC is staging a talk at Ruskin House on March 14 on the role of trade unions (as the organisers put it in the 19th year of this century), “as we move into the 21st century”.

The speaker is Barry Faulkner, the political education co-ordinator for Unite.

The talk will look at the threats and opportunities of new technology and automation, the need for unions to recruit young workers, and the importance of politics and international solidarity for the movement in a global economy.

The talk begins at 7.30pm and tickets are free, though you do need to reserve your place, which can be done by clicking here and booking via Eventbrite.

Ruskin House is at 23 Coombe Road, CR0 1BD.
