William Brown, ‘The Challenge Facing Trade Unions in the UK’ Emeritus Professor of Industrial Relations at Cambridge, former Master of Darwin College.

Alastair Reid, ‘Studying Trade Union History: some Personal Reflections’ Visiting Professor of History and Policy, King’s College London, co-founder of History and Policy. Fellow of Girton College.

This new interdisciplinary seminar series run by Cambridge UCU brings together researchers, practitioners and policy-makers to understand and respond to the challenges facing trade unionism in the UK and beyond. It explores the history, theory and current practice of the trade union movement, which despite prophesies of doom and decline, remains a hugely important part of the modern world, embedded in the working of states and economies, continuously rediscovered as a solution to problems of inequality, economic security, and collective political organization.

Each session involves speaker presentations and time for open discussion. There will be a trip to the Anchor pub round the corner afterwards.

This talk is part of the Cambridge UCU series.
