Log on. Cook leeds. Discovery module overview. Such debates are often speculative and can serve to obscure how actually existing employment relations are being shaped by new technologies. This workshop calls for more careful, empirically grounded, theorisations of technology, its novelty and its impact on work and employment relations.
We ask that contributions recognise the influence of conflicted interests and actions by managers, workers, the state and other social actors on the patterns, processes and outcomes of technological innovation. Registration links will be available from October. For many decades Willy was an eminent scholar in these fields, not only in the United Kingdom but also internationally.

As discussed and agreed at the AGM in Leeds , the voting system for vacancies on the Executive Committee will be conducted differently. However, we would strongly encourage women to apply for these positions as they remain to be under-represented on the Committee. Of course this does not remove open competition and the selection process is still via the membership at the AGM, not the Stewardship or the Executive Committee. Please include a short biography of no more than words and your reasons for applying for the vacant position.
The group covers all aspects of flexible work issues including part-time work, telework, home working, shift work, flexible hours, compressed working week, zero hours contracts and other temporary and flexible arrangements.

Papers from doctoral students are very welcome.
Abstracts of papers to be presented at the study group are invited on any aspects of flexible working and may be at the macro, organisational or individual level; theoretically based; or on empirical research that is country, region, sector or organisation specific. Please send the abstract as a word file to c. Croucher mdx. Authors selected to present at the Study Group will be notified as soon as possible.

This regular monthly seminar is focused on the ever more urgent question of how labour law can address climate change and sustainability issues and we are fortunate to have two expert speakers.
She will outline the partial acknowledgement of certain facets of an International Labour Organisation ILO decent work agenda in this context in substantive terms within, for example, SDGs 5 and 8. She will also discuss the potential significance for labour standard setting and enforcement of procedural entitlements related to sustainable decision-making under SDG 16, alongside the challenges of global policy coherence envisaged in SDG She is currently involved in a European Commission-funded project entitled aGREENment , which investigates the role of European, including UK-based, labour unions in negotiating such forms of governance through the means of collective bargaining.
This seminar is an opportunity to air and discuss these issues in an open forum and consider their implications for industrial relations. Anyone interested is welcome to attend this event. Young women and men and the future of work and family formation. Most literature and public debate on the future of work revolves around the impact of technology, potential for job loss, changes in work design and new concepts of organisation and leadership.
There is much less analysis of the gendered implications of work and labour market change. Our survey data show a convergence between men and women who are parents and young women who are not parents stating the importance for their futures of flexibility and work-family leave policies. Our qualitative data suggest having children is considered in similar ways by young women, regardless of skill level and job security, with the opportunity cost of child bearing versus work, and costs associated with child care and housing rating high in their considerations.
These results portend a change in gender relations amongst younger working parents and have implications for policy at state and firm levels about work and family formation. About the speaker.

Work and Equalities Institute. You can subscribe to our mailing list by emailing us. Developments and challenges in the case of Greater Manchester. The labour market and nature of work are changing at an alarming rate due to factors such as globalisation, the impact of de-regulation and the complexity of new technologies. We are seeing greater dualism and fragmentation in terms of employment, and the reach of the state and public policy is being challenged within such a context. However, public institutions at the local level are increasingly being seen as important platforms for re-regulating employment relations and standards.
Yet what does this mean in terms of establishing positive labour standards and reversing the shift to poor or bad employment practices?
What are the challenges of utilising the local tiers of the state as a vehicle for decent work in terms of its organisational capacity, political diversities, and changing links to the European Union? The session will reflect on these questions and discuss the possibilities and risks related to this new direction in establishing labour and employment standards. There will be specific discussion of a number of emerging initiatives and developments both in Greater Manchester and further afield, including local employment charters, the role of local councils in providing decent work, the use of public procurement for setting minimum standards in supply chains, and the changing nature of social dialogue with city based organisations.
Modern Working Practices and the Future of Work. The aspiration of decent work for all has been embedded in high profile policy objectives both internationally UN Sustainable Development Goal 8 and at national level.
