Wednesday 26 October / 5.15 p.m. / Room 5, Mill Lane Lecture Rooms, Mill Lane, Cambridge CB2 1RX
Tonight, Cambridge University and College Union will hold the first event in its new Trade Union Series. The industrial relationist William Brown (books include The Evolution of the Modern Workplace, 2009) and the historian Alastair Reid (books include United We Stand, 2004) will speak on the past, present, and future of trade unions in Britain.
Trade unions remain vital parts of the modern world, regularly rediscovered as a solution to problems of inequality, economic security, and political organization. The series will engage with the history, theory, and practice of trade unions.
