Trade unions have existed in the UK for centuries and remain a legitimate and important form of employee representation. Yet, with the embers of a second winter of discontent still warm, what can people professionals and organisations more broadly do to work more effectively with and form a mutual understanding with trade unions?

Listen to our panel of experts as they discuss how people professionals can help organisations to work constructively with trade union representatives and help to foster healthy and productive working relationships with employees and their representatives.

Our panel of experts include:

  • Melanie Simms, Professor of Work and Employment, Glasgow University
  • Michael Jude, Human Resources Director, Nissan
  • Vince Toman, Senior Employment and Health and Safety Lawyer at Lewis Silkin
  • Rachel Suff, Senior Policy Adviser, CIPD

Chaired by Katie Jacobs, Senior Stakeholder Lead, CIPD
