The New Spectre Haunting Europe: The ECJ, Trade Union Rights and the British Government

A free conference, Saturday 28th November 2009, 10:00am- 3:30pm, in the Main Hall, TUC Congress House

Organised by The Institute of Employment Rights in association with SERTUC

To book your free place, please book at office@ier.org.uk

This conference, organised around the 2nd anniversary of the initial ECJ decisions, aims to bring workers together with sympathetic academics and lawyers to share information, learn from each others’ experiences and plan for a better future.

So how should unions and their members respond? What are the political, legal and industrial options open to unions and their members? Unions are pushing politically for changes to EU and UK laws. Lawyers are looking at ways to challenge the direction of the ECJ through the ILO and the European Court of Human Rights. But can workers wait? Examples of workers ignoring restrictive laws and fighting back in defence of pay and jobs are already spreading – and winning.

Speakers include:- John Hendy QC; John Monks, ETUC; Sarah Veale, TUC; Prof Keith Ewing; Bob Crow, RMT; Barry Camfield, ODA; Steve Cottingham, O H Parsons; Richard Arthur, Thompsons Solicitors; Brian Caton, POA; Billy Hayes, CWU
