Smith Institute Forum on Making Work Better

1 May 2014

INVITATION: ‘ONE NATION AT WORK: AN OPEN FORUM ON MAKING WORK BETTER' – HAVE YOUR SAY WITH RACHEL REEVES MP AND IAN MURRAY MP 

The Smith Institute invites you to a question time style open forum on this at 1745hrs for 1800hrs on Thursday 15th May 2014 at Albert Room, Town Hall, The Headrow, Leeds, LS1 3AD.  The discussion will conclude no later than 1915hrs and will be followed by a drinks reception.

The Smith Institute, with the support of Ed Miliband, has recently launched an independent inquiry into the world of work, focusing on what government, employers, employees, and unions can do to improve working life in Britain. Ahead of the general election the Smith Instittute want to open up the debate on ‘making work better’ and what makes for ‘good work’. In particular, we want to hear your views and get your ideas on what can be done to improve the world of work, in regards to pay and conditions, the quality of work and the voice of employees and unions at work. What changes should Labour be advocating and how should they be implemented?

The event will be informal, with short presentations by Rachel Reeves MP (Shadow Secretary of State for Work and Pensions) and Ian Murray MP (Shadow Business Minister). The discussion will include a Q&A session.

For more information on the Inquiry visit the Smith Institute website www.smith-institute.org.uk. You can also submit your views to makingworkbetter@smith-institute.org.uk.
