Power, Politics, and Influence at Work

Tony Dundon, The University of Manchester

Help build workers’ rights and a better future for employment and society

With the world of work in unprecedented flux, the role of workers’ rights has never been more pressing, as society grapples with issues such as how to ensure better employment equity and safety.

On this course, you will get an introduction to the world of ‘work and employment studies’ (WES), from experts at the Work and Equalities Institute at the University of Manchester, the Department of Work and Employment Studies at the University of Limerick, and Liverpool University Management School.

You’ll explore how global employment conditions have become ever more fragmented and unequal, before examining the different frameworks of power and politics that relate to your workplace, learning how employees can find a voice through trade unions.

Ultimately you’ll explore what the future of work and equalities themselves could look like – and how employment could become more just.

This course would appeal to workplace representatives and trade unionists, as well as those who work or volunteer for social and political movements concerned with labour and citizenship rights.

It would also benefit policymakers and policy influencers.
