Links and websites

Unions21. Say about themselves: We provide an ‘open space’ for discussion on the future of the trade union movement and the world of work. We have helped shape unions since 1993 by providing evidence, advice, new thinking and networks. We are mainly resourced by contributions from unions and others who work with unions that recognise we need to keep the movement evolving in an ever changing world. We encourage discussion through research, publications, conferences, seminars and similar activities. http://www.unions21.org.uk/ There are some useful publications and videos on the site – currently The Fair Work Commission First Report and also a publication on young workers.
