Conference 21

“Decent Work & Democracy”

Due to the increasing Covid19 infection rate, the organising committee have decided to postpone this event until spring 2022

We feel it is important to follow the precautionary principle and to make our own decisions on this matter, and not wait for guidance from the so called government. We hope that by the spring the Covid19 infection rate will have reduced and face to face meetings will be much safer again

Our conference on union-coops at 
Wortley Hall, South Yorkshire will be rescheduled in the spring of 2022, but in the meantime we will be organising a series of online events starting Oct 2nd

Book now for the online events at

The first online event will be on the original date of Oct 2nd 2021 with Michael Peck of 1worker:1vote and some of his USA colleagues. It is provisionally scheduled for 11.00am to 13.00, but exact times may be subject to change

Later online events will cover the topics below, and will include as many of the original speakers as are available
