Organise 2000, New Ways to Win


Identifying new ways that trade unions can appeal to new members, particularly young people and women, is one of the subjects up for discussion at Organise 2000 next weekend (Saturday 18th).

London Mayor, Ken Livingstone, is the key speaker at the event that will look at how trade unions can make the most of recent changes in employment law to organise and recruit in new workplaces and from new workforce areas.

New rights at work and changes in the economy offer new opportunities for trade unions to recruit and organise, but they also bring potential problems.

Employees now have the right to be represented by a trade union. Where the majority of employees want it, they are entitled to have their employer recognise a trade union.

Unions have to work out the best ways to work together to maximise membership, rather than competing with each other. They must also be prepared for resistance from hostile employers.
The conference will also discuss:

  • How effective the new recognition laws have been and how unions can make better use of them
  • The obstacles to recognition that employers have used
  • How unions can make better use of new technology for recruitment

Other speakers include:

The event takes place on Saturday 18 November from 10:00am-1:30pm at TUC Congress House, Great Russell Street, London.
