Working for a Better Future

  • Mechanics' Conference Centre 103 Princess Street Manchester, England, M1 6DD United Kingdom (map)

The world of work has changed substantially in the last 20 years. The Fourth Industrial Revolution, digitalisation, outsourcing, “gig" working and precarious employment mean that trade unions must find new ways to protect their members. Catholic Social Teaching has been influential in the past, for example Cardinal Manning's intervention in the Dockers' Strike of 1889, and more widely in Catholic majority countries. This meeting brings together expertise from trade unions, the Labour Party and the academic world to explore the contribution that this teaching can bring. The event will be held in the historic Mechanics' Institute, where the TUC held its first meeting 150 years ago. The meeting will start with a buffet lunch at 1pm for 2pm start, to conclude at 4.30pm.
