A Series of Seminars: Economic Policy & the Role of Trade Unions

The General Federation of Trade Unions and SOAS, University of London, in collaboration with the research network, EReNSEP, cordially invite you to an initial series of online seminars on the British economy.

Each seminar will consider critical, but overlooked, contemporary economic issues. These have to be discussed, if fresh policies are to be developed with trade union participation to achieve a new deal for working people, our communities and the environment.

The dominance of the finance sector and lack of investment in the productive economy have created a volatile and fragile environment. It is imperative to consider the latest thinking that could inject dynamism into productive activities, create good jobs, channel finance away from speculation, and achieve environmental targets.

Professor Costas Lapavitsas, Larry Elliott, Economics Editor Guardian, and Grace Blakely, Economics Editor, Tribune, will be among those contributing to this series.

It is hoped that the seminars would lead to new policy development for unions and community organisations.

The seminars will be held online on 13, 16, and 23 June, 7:00-8:30 pm.

YES! YES! YES! UCS! will be performed at Quorn Grange Hotel

Townsend Theatre Productions in association with Manchester University present the story of the Upper Clyde Shipbuilders (UCS) using their trademark integration of live rock and folk inspired music, sound and visual effects to enhance the powerful theatrical story-telling, to intensify the emotional engagement and audience enthusiasm for meaningful and important messages of hope, social justice and improvements in quality of life.

Yes! Yes! U.C.S! is a celebration of the community solidarity, collective resistance and the vital support that made the ‘Work In’ such a massive success.

Townsend will be performing this fantastic play, marking the work-in’s 50th anniversary, at Quorn Grange Hotel on 29th March at 7pm and we have set up special rates below for the occasion!
