Labour and the Past, Present and Future of Work


The Labour Party has been successful in the past at offering both change and consensus around a changing economy and world of work. To do so again though, we need the Labour Party needs a clear, positive, vision that can engage with the hopes of workers present and past, young and old.
This vision must be optimistic, focusing on tangible future benefits. 
It must go beyond stale repetitions of what the party is against, and not be hung up on impossible promises to restore what has been lost in previous decades.
Progressive Britain have partnered with a leading academic and trade unionist to publish this paper, which is part of building that vision – setting out how Labour has grasped the politics of work in the past, the challenges of today and the electoral and moral victories than can be won should the party get it right now.
