TUC Congress 2015: After the Election: Where next for the labour movement?

This fringe event at TUC Congress 2015 will focus on where next for the labour movement and the wider left following the 2015 General Election. Speakers will debate what actions and approaches are needed if the labour movement is to effectively challenge the increasing inequalities in wealth and power already seen as a result of the new Conservative Government.

Where next for the labour movement? will look at the pivotal role social solidarity and the labour movement have played in protecting working people, reversing patterns of inequality and developing responsive public services over the last hundred years and speakers will discuss how these principles can be applied in new ways to stand up for working people in the challenging few years ahead.

Speakers include:

Dave Ward, General Secretary, CWU

Rebecca Winson, GMB young member and activist 

Owen Jones, commentator and writer (Chavs, The Establishment)

Steve Turner, Assistant General Secretary, Unite
