Events at Shire Hall Historic Courthouse Museum in November

Event: Trade unions in the twenty first century
When and what time: Thursday 15 November 7pm for 7.30pm
More info: Kate Bell from the TUC gives a talk about what is the role of trade unions in the twenty first century. Workers are facing the longest wage squeeze for 200 years, and an epidemic of insecure work. And with many people worrying that robots could put them out of a job, it’s clear that workers need a strong voice more than ever. This talk will discuss how trade unions can rise to that challenge.
