Right wing populist moments have not only gained electorally but their messages have found their way into the mainstream. Their narratives are aimed at dividing working people. The rise of the far right is an international phenomenon that demands a joined up response. The launch of the TUC’s report explores how the trade union movement is responding and what more we can do to work together internationally and build solidarity against those who try to divide us.
Speakers: Frances O’Grady, TUC General Secretary, Kevin Courtney, TUC General Council International Spokesperson and NEU Joint General Secretary; Chidi King, ITUC Director of Equality; Dr Stiofán Ó Nualláin, Trademark Belfast.
Chaired by Gail Cartmail, TUC President & Unite Assistant General Secretary
The event will be followed in the new year by a series of online workshops for union reps and activists offering practical solutions to challenging far right narratives in the workplace.
