In Conversation with Rob Halfon MP and The Future of Work (Evening Double Bill)

Demos held a panel discussion at Conservative Party Conference to discuss the changing needs and preferences of working Britons, and how the Government, employers, trade unions and political parties can ensure that work remains the best avenue to a fulfilling life and strong communities.  This fringe event was a continuation of the Demos and the Conservative Workers and Trade Unionists partnership, looking at the future of work. Demos first supported this project in 2012, when we published Rob Halfon MP’s Stop the Union Bashing paper. We were delighted to partner with the CWTU in this event to take this work further.
