International Bargaining and Regulation Seminar: 29th April 2014


On behalf of the good people (Joe Holly, Dave Spooner et al) behind the Global Labour Institute (GLI) can I encourage you to attend a half-day event in Manchester next week. All details are below including how to book a place. I can't think of a better time for such a gathering and so I commend the GLI and its partner organisations for putting together a thought-provoking programme with a dynamic cross-section of speakers.

A half-day seminar to explore current thinking and experience in international collective bargaining and regulation. The seminar is one of a sequence of events that follow GLI’s International Summer Schools, enabling trade unionists and academics to explore and discuss some of the key issues in greater depth. The seminars are organised as a partnership between the Global Labour Institute in Manchester, the European Work and Employment Research Centre at Manchester Business School and the Critical Labour Studies network.
