TUC and British Chambers of Commerce debate the future of the UK’s workforce
The TUC and the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) will co-host a debate the future of the UK’s workforce, at TUC Headquarters on Tuesday 12 July.
The event, hosted by TUC General Secretary Brendan Barber and BCC Director General David Frost, will debate the following questions
Is the Government right to propose a new system of shared parental leave and a universal right to request flexible working?
Will these proposals create modern workplaces and improve productivity, or will they tangle business up in red tape and hold back economic recovery?
As well as setting out the respective positions of the TUC and BCC, the seminar aims to explore some areas of agreement and ways in which the government’s proposals can be improved.
The debate will be chaired by Louisa Peacock, jobs editor at the Daily Telegraph, and takes place between 12.30 and 2pm in the Council Chamber at TUC Headquarters, Congress House, 23-28 Great Russell Street, London WC1B 3LS. Lunch will be available from midday.
