Redistribution Of Working Time & Wealth Webinar


The Confederation of Shipbuilding & Engineering Unions along with the Institute Of Employment Rights and the Campaign For Trade Union Freedom are a holding webinar:

Shorter Working Time and The Redistribution of Wealth

November 9th  7pm to 8pm.

The CSEU was at the forefront in campaigning for shorter working time and 30 years ago the CSEU unions lead the successful fight for a 35 hour week in engineering – based on a clear and well thought out strategy, aimed at forcing key companies to concede shorter hours, which would then secure similar agreements.

The CSEU believes the time has come for that campaign to be revived and is working with organisations including the New Economics Foundation, the Institute Of Employment Rights and the Campaign For Trade Union Freedom to prepare the ground to fight for and win shorter worker time in Engineering and Manufacturing.

The webinar will hear from:

  • CSEU General Secretary Ian Waddell on the aims of the campaign;
  • Labour’s Shadow Minister For Employment Rights Andy McDonald;
  • Journalist and campaigner Anna Coote of the NEF.
  • Chair: Tony Burke Assistant General Secretary of Unite and President of the CSEU

There will be regular updates/tweets on social media from the CSEU, IER and CTUF
