Kiwi Lessons In Innovation

March 19, 2019

The new series of Unions21podcasts kicks off with Becky and Simon spending time with New Zealand trade unionists Andrea Fromm and Kirsten Windelov,  of the 70,000 strong Public Services Association.

Although 12,000 miles and 13 time zones away, there are important lessons to learn from impressive initiatives like  collective bargaining rights for freelancers and platforms that promote worker rights rather than abuse them.  

Closer to home, we also look at the fantastic victory of the Pharmacists Defence Association Union (or PDA for short) in their campaign for recognition in Boots, and

celebrate the outlawing of zero-hour contracts in Ireland

We send sympathy and condolences to those affected by the terrorist acts in Christchurch on 15 March. You can read the PSA statement here.
